The wholesale dealer of a 'sex lighter' was arrested in Kottayam on Tuesday for selling the product which was reportedly selling like hot cakes among school students.
Kottayam superintendent of police S Sreejith told IANS: "When the lighter is lit, a picture of a lady in a compromising position pops out."
Priced at Rs15, the lighter was very popular among schoolchildren. The matter surfaced when a schoolboy gifted the lighter to a girl in his class. The girl's parents approached the police and they tracked down the wholesale dealer.
"He has been arrested and we have confiscated around 300 such lighters. The police have been asked to be on the look out for any shop selling this product," Sreejith said.
