This is a word used in the early part of the 20th century by Tamilians. It denotes some one who is naive (to the point of being stupid) and literally invades your personal space. The root is from sanskrit (Abi Thishtathum ichchuhu) - one who loves to stand right next to you.

Usage

Son: Appa, what were you doing with the next door lady?
Father:(striking his head expressively)- Abhishtu, Abhishtu.
