Goa Police will quiz two top executives of Fabindia on Friday in connection with the trial room camera episode involving its outlet at Candolim near Panaji.

The Goa Crime Branch had earlier summoned Fabindia's chief executive Officer Subrata Dutta and managing director William Bissel to appear before the investigators in connection with the voyeurism case.

"We have received reply from Fabindia's CEO and MD that they will appear before police on Friday," superintendent of police (Crime Branch) Kartik Kashyap told PTI.

Police have also summoned the company's board of directors, who are likely to be quizzed on Thursday, he said.

"Various people associated with Fabindia are being questioned today," Kashyap added.

Police had on Tuesday interrogated the company's Candolim store manager Chaitrali Sawant, who was granted anticipatory bail by a local court on Monday.

Earlier, four employees of the company's outlet in Candolim had been arrested after Union HRD minister Smriti Irani, who visited the store on April 3, alleged that it had a CCTV camera focusing at the trial room.

They were booked under IPC sections 354C (voyeurism), 509 (intrusion into privacy) and IT Act's section 66E (capturing, publishing image of private area of any person without his/her consent).

They were later granted bail. Fabindia has denied it had placed hidden cameras in any of its stores, holding that the camera in question was part of the surveillance system.
