An obsessed stalker bombarded a hospital in St John’s Wood with hundreds of letters when she fell in love with a doctor, a court heard today.
Anuradha Megpara, 53, became besotted with Dr Daryll Baker and sent 400 cards and notes professing her love for him to the Wellington Hospital, it was said.
Megpara now faces a charge of harassment after she inundated Dr Baker and his secretary with the romantic messages between April 26 and September 9.
She admitted sending the letters during a police interview, but denies they amounted to harassment.
Dr Baker will now have to face his admirer as a witness in court after Megpara pleaded not guilty to harassment at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today.
