Videotaping of woman on bus: Kolkata Police arrest accused Mohammad Khan within minutes of distress call

Khan was allegedly videotaping a woman in the bus. Kolkata police nabbed the accused within minutes of receiving the complaint.

The Kolkata police have arrested a man after a 35-year-old woman had accused him of taking pictures of her inside a moving bus. The woman who had boarded the bus on Sunday morning with her husband and daughter allegedly caught the man sitting in the opposite seat recording her.

Accused of voyeurism, 24-year-old Mohammed Khan has been arrested by Muchipara police station. Khan is a resident of Uluberia in Howrah and was arrested under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code.

Reportedly, the woman had boarded a private bus on the Dhulagarh-Sealdah route on Sunday morning. The accused sat opposite her. A co-passenger had informed the woman that the accused was taking pictures of her

“One of the co-passengers first noticed that the man was taking my photos. When we challenged him, he denied. But then we found the photos on his cell phone. So I dialled 100 and sought help from the police”, said the woman.

The woman made the call while the bus went past the Wellington crossing on Lenin Sarani. An officer of the control room immediately asked the officer-in-charge of Sealdah Traffic guard to intercept the bus and look into the matter. The accused was apprehended within minutes of the woman’s call to police.

Before the police could arrive, passengers already started to assault him after they found out that he had recorded several other women in public. On learning that the police have been called, the accused fell at the feet of the woman asking for mercy. But the women decided to teach him a lesson and handed him over to the cops.

According to the police, the bus was stopped in front of the NRS hospital. The accused was handed over by the passengers but his friend had managed to flee. The youth had then been taken back to Muchipara police station.

The prompt response of the police, in this case, is being appreciated by many. This incident comes after former Miss India Ushoshi Sengupta had complained of police apathy in Kolkata when she and her Uber driver were harassed by a mob two weeks earlier.
