Spa staffer held for molesting NRI at a 5-star hotel
Victim alleges hotel authorities were not sensitive to her complaint, refused to approach police following which she herself decided to lodge a complaint
An employee of a spa was arrested for allegedly molesting an NRI woman. The incident was reported in south Delhi's five star hotel in Vasant Vihar area on January 13. The accused, Sanjay, a salon employee in the hotel, was arrested on the woman's complaint and a case was slapped against him, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (south) Chhaya Sharma. "The victim alleged the hotel authorities were not sensitive to her complaint and refused to approach the police following which she herself decided to lodge a complaint," a police officer said.
The victim had checked into the hotel along with her parents on January 12. "The next day, she claimed, she and her mother went to a spa and while going for a head massage, she was taken to a separate room although there were five other available chairs in the room where her mother was," a police officer said.
He added, "The victim claimed she was having a terrible headache and was exhausted and the therapist apparently pressed certain nerves so she would go to sleep. When she woke up, she alleged, she found the salon employee molesting her and she immediately reported the matter to the lobby manager."
"The woman alleged that they did not see any action taken by the hotel management instead they passed the blame on to the spa, saying it was an outsourced division," the officer added.
