New Delhi: A 34-year-old corporate lawyer has been arrested for allegedly taking obscene pictures of women with a spy cam fitted to one of his shoes at a prominent South Delhi mall, said police today.
The lawyer, who is a son of a former president of consumer forum in Haryana, was arrested yesterday when a manager of a popular shop in the shopping mall suspected his unusual behaviour of standing particularly besides women while advancing his right foot.
When the manager started interrogating him, he tried to get away but was later caught by the security guards. The security guards found the spy cam and called up the police. 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. His laptop and mobile police has been confiscated by the police.
Further investigation is under way, police said.
