BeHive restaurant in Pune issues apology for hidden camera found in women’s washroom, lodges FIR against the culprits

One Nandini Dhingra took to her Instagram account to share her ordeal sharing an image of the hidden camera that she located inside Cafe BeHive’s washroom on November 3.

After the news of a woman visitor discovering a hidden camera inside the ladies washroom of the plush restaurant in Pune’s Hinjewadi IT Park created a flutter on social media with angry Twitter users criticising and demanding a ban on the cafe, the restaurant has now come up with an apology.

Expressing regret over the incident, the cafe said it has initiated action against its housekeeping agency and had lodged an FIR against the culprits who are now absconding. “We are apologetic for what happened and assure that no such incident takes place again,” the restaurant said in a statement.

According to an Indian Express report, the Hinjewadi police had registered a case against the BeHive restaurant under charges of breach of privacy. It had booked one of the staffs provided to the cafe by a third-party hospitality service.

As part of the probe, the role of everyone at the restaurant will be investigated, said police officials, keeping the option to register a separate offence if the woman approaches them with a complaint of her own open.

On Sunday, a woman named Nandini Dhingra had found a hidden camera in the women’s washroom of this cafe. Initially, she took up the matter with the management of the cafe but alleging inaction from there side, she took to her Instagram account to share her ordeal, also sharing an image of the hidden camera that she located inside Cafe BeHive’s washroom on November 3.

The cafe received severe backlash after her post went viral on social media. Angry social media users criticised the cafe and questioned the safety of women in such cafes. Taking cognizance of the issue, Pune Police responded to the social media post on Tuesday, assuring help in registering an FIR.
