BENGALURU: An employee of a food court in an IT company in HAL was arrested on Monday for allegedly filming women while they used the washroom. Police said Paramesh (22) had fixed a mobile phone in a toilet of the company which has around 2,000 employees.
“Paramesh installed the mobile phone in a toilet on the fourth floor of the building. There are two toilets inside the ladies section with a partition separating them. There is a one feet gap between the floor
and the partition,” police said.
On Monday, Paramesh entered one of the toilets when a woman was in the second toilet and he left his mobile phone with the camera switched on in the gap between the floor and the partition.
“The woman saw the mobile phone and grew suspicious. She alerted the security guard, who tried opening the door of the toilet, but it was locked from inside. The security guard Paramesh finally opened the door and managed to escape,” police said. He allegedly rushed to his house and deleted other recorded videos he had saved.
Based on information from the company, police arrested Paramesh from his house.
“We have seized his phone and have sent it to cyber forensics wing to retrieve the deleted files. We have booked him under relevant sections of IPC and IT act,” said a police officer.
