“I feel like my self-worth is completely gone,” he told Global News, adding that it was “absolutely” affecting his daily life.

Now she has filed a civil suit against Naidu, who stalked her after she posted on LinkedIn that she aspired to be a police officer.

The suit claims, “The various messages and texts from Naidu were intended to prepare the plaintiff at ease for sexual contact.”

He also asked “What do you like best in the bedroom and would you ever have sex in your vehicle?” the suit alleges.

At one time both of them met in person. After Naidu allegedly proposed to her, she filed the complaint.

“I’m looking forward to full responsibility and acknowledgment of this issue when it comes to policing and implementing the change that’s actually going to happen,” she told Global News.

The suit also names the Delta Police Department, the Delta Police Board and the city of Delta.

The Delta Police Department told Global News that it “does not tolerate harassment, bullying or discrimination, especially in relationships of trust and power imbalances.”

“Mr. Naidu’s employment records reflect his dismissal from the Delta Police Department,” the department said.

Delta Mayor and Police Board Chairman George Harvey said he could not comment because the matter is before the courts.

“I want to continue being a police officer,” the complainant told Global News.

“I want to push for it but this systematic cultural change that should happen is not happening.”

She is seeking non-economic damages, enhanced damages and loss of past and future earnings.

Naidu’s lawyer has not filed a response to the claim, and the allegations have not been proven in court.
