Smriti Irani 'voyeurism' case: Goa Police summons Fabindia CEO, MD and 9 other employees

The CCTV camera and digital video recorder (DVR) from the store has been attached by the crime branch and sent to the central forensic science laboratory (CFSL), Hyderabad, for analysis.

Fabindia managing director (MD) William Bissell and chief executive officer (CEO) Subrata Dutta who had sought time to join the investigation into case have informed the crime branch that they will join the investigations soon.

The four accused persons, who were arrested by Calangute police after Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani was filmed while trying out some clothes at an outlet in Candolim, were released on conditional bail on Saturday evening.

Irani, who was in Goa on a two-day holiday, had visited the Fabindia outlet at Candolim on Friday along with her husband. When Irani entered the trial room to tryout some outfits, she noticed the CCTV camera focusing towards the trial room and capturing images while trying some clothes.

Police had registered the case under Sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354 C (voyeurism), and 509 (intruding privacy) of the IPC and Section 66 E (punishment for violation of privacy) of the Information Technology Act, 2000.
