Pune: An upmarket restaurant in Pune's Pimpri-Chinchwad filed a case against a staffer, who allegedly fitted a spy camera in the women's loo. The camera was spotted by a patron who had visited the restaurant and said the restaurant's response on alerting them was unsatisfactory. She stated that only after the entire episode and photos of the spy camera were posted on social media, the restaurant approached the police.
The incident took place on November 3 at the BeHive Kitchen and Brewery at Hinjewadi. The woman who spotted the camera confronted the restaurant staff but says they said they had no idea who had fitted it. She stated they removed it within 10 minutes.
Unhappy with the response, the patron took to social media and uploaded a post on the incident. When the restaurant got criticized online, the management, the manager Rakesh Shetty lodged a complaint with Hinjewadi police on November 5 against Ram Deb Nath, 24, a staffer and resident of Hinjewadi.
Senior Inspector Yashwant Gaware of Hinjewadi police station said,"The incident took place on Sunday around 9.30 pm at the BeHive restaurant. A woman noticed a spy camera in the women's washroom and alerted them. Based on which the complaint was registered two days later by the manager. We are probing why the complaint was lodged late. Also, the staffer they have named is now on run."
When contacted, the restaurant claimed that the camera was fixed by one of their employees who ran away post the incident. The restaurant's spokesperson said, "We initially thought it could have been done by some rival restaurant but were shocked when we scrutinised CCTV footage and found our own staffer had done it."
