A law student faces arrest after a complaint from a Café Coffee Day employee that he called her a slut and a bitch. But she didn’t mention that she slapped him, a video of which is available on social media.

Arpan Verma, a student of National Law University in New Delhi, had uploaded the video showing the employee slapping him after he spotted cockroaches in the popular café in Jaipur on March 12.

The video went viral after it was posted on Twitter on March 25.

But Priyanka Priyadarshini, the employee, lodged a complaint with Manak Chowk police station three days before the video was uploaded. Jaipur police registered an FIR against the man on Tuesday.

The woman wrote in her complaint that Verma harassed her and threatened to outrage her modesty.

“Around 1pm on March 12, Verma and another person came to the café and ordered coffee and some beverages. When I told them that only coffee was available as the branch near Hawa Mahal was temporary, they got angry and Verma called me a slut and bitch,” the woman said.

She said Verma and his friend left the café but threatened that they will be back.

“They returned after 20 minutes and started taking the video of cockroaches in the café. They also focused their camera on me despite my objection. I tried to grab the camera and in the process the mobile phone fell down from Verma’s hand,” she wrote in her complaint.

According to her, Verma threatened to upload the video on social media.

The clip shows Verma showing cockroaches inside the café and Priyadarshini slapping him thereafter.

“We have registered a case against Verma. He came to the police station on Wednesday,” said Chena Ram, station house officer of Manak Chowk police station.

Priyadarshini and Verma couldn’t be contacted for comments.
