In an appalling incident, a 30-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly clicking photographs of women swimming in a private pool near to his house in Vadodara on Tuesday.
The man identified as Akash Patel was arrested late Monday night after one of the women swimming in a pool in a villa in the city’s Gotri area approached the police.
The police said “Patel’s balcony overlooks the swimming pool and the complainant has alleged that he was clicking photographs using his mobile phone. Despite being told to stop, he continued and also abused some of the women.”
The man was charged under sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 294 (obscene acts) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. Patel was produced before a court Tuesday and was granted bail.
