Police is investigating on a woman journalist’s complaint that she was reportedly filmed at a high-end lingerie store in South Delhi’s Greater Kailash M-block market.
The incident took place on 31 August and three days after the incident a First Information Report (FIR) was registered at the Greater Kailash police station under section 354 C (voyeurism) of Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Police said that they are verifying the facts, after which needed action will be taken.
In her complaint, the journalist alleged that after selecting some garments, she had entered a trial room in the shop to try on the clothes.
She added, “I asked the shop owner and other staff members in the shop that if there was a camera there in the room then why was she directed to go to that room, but no one replied. When I called the police, the shop owner called his son and deleted the video.”
The shop owner, however, defended himself saying that she “accidentally” deviated into the storeroom and that a woman staffer alerted her as soon as the “mistake” was realized.
The journalist also alleged that the shopkeeper was watching the live footage from a hidden camera.
