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.
Magistrate Carolyn Mishon said: “This matter is now adjourned for your trial which will take place on the 15 March at City of London magistrates’ court at 9.30am.
“Until then you have two conditions of bail, the same as you have had before.
- 1 Two dead in Maida Vale: Woman stabbed and man 'struck by vehicle'
- 2 Man arrested on suspicion of murder following Maida Vale deaths
- 3 'London’s smallest bus lane' earns Harrow Council £440,000
- 4 'London is lagging behind – protect yourself and others from Covid'
- 5 Teenager killed in Stonebridge after collision with a car

- 10 Brent LTN removal set to be financed from 'existing council budgets'
“You are not to contact directly or indirectly the person, that means you may not contact him by sending him text messages, emails, or on Facebook.”
Megpara from Camden, is also barred from attending Wellington Hospital while she is on bail.
