This shopping trip was definitely not a therapeutic one. This writer from Uttar Pradesh got a man arrested a few days ago after catching him filming her while she was trying on a swimming costume in a Bandra (West) boutique. The accused has been identified as Movin Sarwalo, a businessman from Borivli.

The incident happened on June 2, when the woman was out shopping in Bandra. She visited the boutique and selected a swimming costume. While going into the changing room, she noticed Sarwalo watching her. Ignoring him, she went in, locked the door and was trying on the swimsuit, when she spotted a hand raising a cellphone from the top of the changing room partition.
