Mumbai Police arrests man who masturbated at woman in Colaba

Mumbai: The Mumbai Police on Wednesday morning arrested the man who was caught on camera after he allegedly masturbated at an American woman in broad daylight in Colaba.

"Gopal Valmiki, who is in his late 20s, was apprehended by police in early morning hours," said Colaba police station senior inspector Vinay Gadgil.

Maryanna Abdo claimed on Twitter that Gopal Valmiki masturbated at her when she was taking a morning walk in the area, and ran away when confronted.

The American writer, however, managed to capture his photo and tweeted it immediately, catching the Maharashtra Chief Minister's Office attention.

Police had yesterday recorded the woman's statement and registered an FIR.

The accused has been booked under Section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult modesty of a woman) of the IPC, Gadgil added. 

Here is what Abdo had tweeted:

The Chief Minister's Office in Maharashtra had responded to Abdo's tweets.

Abdo had later removed the picture as she handed over the matter to police and thanked Twitterati for their responses.
