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, reports said on Monday.
According to Delhi Police, the man arrested is a lawyer by profession and son of a former president of consumer forum in Haryana.
He was arrested on Saturday 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 reportedly tried to get away but was later caught by the security guards. The security guards allegedly found the spy cam and called up the police.
A case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (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 himself 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 camera in his right shoe and used to place his foot in a particular manner so as to capture obscene photographs of women. He also revealed that he has been to the mall previous Saturdays too. The police has confiscated his laptop and mobile phone.
Further investigation is under way, police said.
