A 35-year-old man was recently arrested by the Bandra police for allegedly filming an obscene video of his girlfriend’s friend and circulating it on WhatsApp. He has been booked for voyeurism under relevant sections of the IPC and the IT Act. The police are now searching for his girlfriend. They said the 29-year-old complainant is a resident of Bandra (West) and both the accused live in the same area.

On January 1, the accused’s girlfriend asked the complainant to meet her. The complainant was offered a drink after she reached the woman’s residence at 9.30pm. After taking a few sips, the complainant told the woman that the drink tasted weird. But the accused and his girlfriend told her that they had added sugar to it and asked her to finish her drink. Within minutes the complainant felt dizzy and fell asleep. When she woke up at 2am the next day, she saw that both the accused were sleeping next to her. The complaint left the house immediately.

On January 4, she came to know that the accused had filmed an obscene video of hers after she fell asleep. She also learnt that they had filmed similar videos of other women as well.

Based on her complaint, the Bandra police filed an FIR and arrested the accused. He was produced in the court on Monday and remanded in police custody for two days. Seeking his police custody, prosecutor Priti Jagtap said, “Cases of crime against women are increasing by day. The mobile used in the crime is yet to be recovered and hence his custody is required.”
