Police stn in-charge responsible for hidden cameras

Akhilesh Yadav

Lucknow: With a hidden camera spotted in a trial room of a garment store in Goa, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today said police station in-charge will be held responsible if such devices are found in malls or show rooms in the state.

Terming such incidents a blot on the society, the CM said the police station in-charge of the area will be considered responsible for preventing such incidents and strict action will be taken in such cases.

“The CM has directed that strict action should be taken against the station in-charge concerned in incidents of installing hidden camera or video recording in changing or trial rooms in malls, showrooms and shops,” an official spokesman said here.

The statement comes as a relief to the people of the state as Uttar Pradesh is home to many popular shopping malls.

An alert Union Minister Smriti Irani yesterday raised an alarm after she spotted a hidden camera at an outlet of a leading garment store that was pointed towards the trial room she used while trying out some clothes that led to a case of voyeurism being filed and arrest of four employees.

Four staff members of the Fabindia-owned outlet at the upmarket boutique chain at Candolim near here, who were earlier detained, were arrested by Goa police following a complaint by BJP MLA Michael Lobo who was called by Irani after the incident.
