Voyeurism case could malign Goa’s image: Former CM


Shirdi: Former Chief Minister of Goa Digambar Kamat said the voyeurism case, filed against four employees of a leading apparel store after HRD minister Smriti Irani spotted a hidden camera in the store’s trial room in Goa’s Candolim, could malign the state’s image. He termed the incident as “very unfortunate” and said it could malign the image of Goa, which is otherwise considered safe for women.

“Yesterday’s incident was very unfortunate and wrong,” he said. Kamat, who was here last night, demanded stringent action against the guilty. He further said that people of Goa voted BJP to power for a “change”. Kamat said that common people were expecting good governance from the BJP government in Goa but they were left “disappointed”.

On Friday, HRD minister Smriti Irani raised an alarm after she spotted a hidden camera in the trial room of a Fabindia outlet in Candolim, following which a case of voyeurism was lodged and four employees of the store were arrested.
