Police have arrested a 30-year-old male orderly of Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre in Outer Delhi’s Rohini on charges of filming women after allegedly putting up spy camera in changing room for nurses.

A nurse spotted the spy camera in the changing room inside the intensive care unit (ICU) on the third floor and alerted a security guard, said sources.

Police have reportedly recovered two obscene video clips from his spy camera, which was installed for around 12 hours, said sources. Police will now try to retrieve deleted data, added the sources.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer District), Vikramjeet Singh said the accused was identified as Sandeep Sharma. He said action was taken after the police received a complaint from the hospital administration. “Sharma, who hails from Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh, is also being questioned to ascertain whether he put the camera at other places as well. Investigations are on,” he added.

The police received a call Tuesday morning from the hospital administration and rushed to the spot. Hospital authorities handed over Sharma to the police.

Later, a case was registerd under Section 354-C (watching or capturing an image of a woman engaging in a private act in circumstances where she would usually have the explanation of not being observed either by the perpetrator or by any other person at the behest of the perpetrator) of the IPC at Vijay Vihar police station of Outer Delhi.

Sharma was arrested and later released on bail. “During questioning, Sharma confessed to the crime and the camera was sent to a forensic lab,” claimed a police officer.

Sources said when the camera was detected, it was on video-recording mode. “Sharma told the police about four days ago, he purchased the spy camera from Palika Bazaar for around Rs 4,000 . A few other hospital staff are also being questioned,” a police officer said.
