New Delhi, Sept 28: In a shocking incident, a pervert was caught red-handed when he indulged in a shameful act of filming women through a spy camera, fitted inside his one of his shoes.
32-year-old Ashish Sharma, who works at a Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) firm in Noida, used to target women and girls wearing short dresses. Then, wittingly and very cleverly, he used to put his right shoe forward near the standing women, to make a video of their private parts.
On Sunday, Sept 27, at DLF Place Mall in Saket area of South Delhi, Sharma's unusual behaviour caught the attention of a security guard, who alerted the mall manager.
When he was confronted, he initially tried to escape, but he was took over by guards present at the mall. On checking, a spy camera was found fitted inside his shoe. Then, he started doing tactics to evade any action.
He knelt down and started pleading for his voyeuristic acts. He even wrote a confession note.
But the mall authorities called the police and got him arrested. Sharma revealed that he had made around twelve such video clips and he got the idea by watching porn sites. Then, he ordered a spy camera from an online portal.
Police booked him under sections of voyeurism and stalking (sections 354C & 354D) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and is investigating whether he uploaded those videos on any adult site. Police has seized his laptop and mobile phone for further probe.
Sharma comes from an affluent family and is a resident of Faridabad. He is married and has a son. His mother is a retired magistrate from Gurgaon and father is a doctor.
After few hours of his arrest, he got bail.
