New Delhi: A 34-year-old corporate lawyer was arrested on Sunday for allegedly taking obscene pictures of women with a spy cam fitted to one of his shoes at DLF Saket mall, said police.
The lawyer, who is a son of a former president of consumer forum in Haryana, was arrested on Saturday when manager of a popular shop in DLF Saket suspected his unusual behaviour of standing particularly besides women while advancing his right foot. When he was confronted, he tried to get away but was soon nabbed. The security guards discovered spy cam and police was informed.
A case under relevant sections of IPC was registered immediately, said DCP (South) Prem Nath. Police also recovered around 12 obscene clips from his possession, but it is yet to be found out whether he stored the clips for personal use or uploaded over internet sites.
During interrogation, he disclosed that he conceived the idea from popular sites and later purchased the spy cam from an online portal. Police officials said that he fitted the cam in his right shoe and used to tactically place his foot so as to capture private parts of women. He also revealed that he has been to the mall previous Saturday too.
The lawyer is a resident of Faridabad. Police filed cases under 354C and 354D (outraging modesty of women) of the Indian Penal Code. He has been now released on bail.
