A Delhi-based journalist was allegedly filmed at a posh lingerie store in South Delhi's Greater Kailash M-block market. She also alleged that the shopkeeper was watching footage from the hidden camera live. Police has lodged an FIR in the case under IPC Section 354 C (voyeurism) but have not made any arrests in the matter so far. The incident took place on August 31 and the FIR was registered 3 days later at Greater Kailash police station.
Talking to newsnation.in, the journalist said, "A female staffer directed me to the trial room. After 10 minutes, while I was trying the garments, the same woman came inside and asked me to go to another room. She said the room I was using has a live CCTV camera."
The victim said she was shocked and couldn't understand how to deal with the situation.
"The woman insisted me to go to another room. At that time, I was half-clothed and saw that two men, including the shopkeeper, were sitting just outside the room. I yelled at her and immediately put on my clothes and came out," the journalist said.
"I called the police control room and later gave them a written complaint. By then, the shopkeeper had deleted the footage and assured that nothing has been stored," she said.
Police are also looking into the possibility that the shopkeeper had footage of other women in his database from the hidden camera.
