Pradeep Manukonda, 31, of Milpitas has been ordered to stay 300 feet away from Mark Zuckerberg and stop contacting him. It seems the Facebook founder, as well as his girlfriend and family, have been the recipient of unwanted attention from Manukonda since as early as December 2010.

Associated Press reports:

Manukonda tried to contact Zuckerberg numerous times in December via letter, e-mail and Facebook, including more than 20 times in one day, Facebook security officer Todd Sheets said in a court declaration. Manukonda also left a note on Zuckerberg's car and was later spotted outside his house, Sheets said.

Guards stopped Manukonda just as he was about to walk up the front stairs to Zuckerberg's Palo Alto residence, where Zuckerberg's girlfriend was inside, according to court documents.


Manukoda also allegedly sent Zuckerberg letters, pleading for some of his time and for money to help his mother. "I plead, please help me in saving my mother," he wrote in a letter dated January 23. "I am ready to die for you. Please Mark please."
