Gurugram: A woman has claimed that her domestic help filmed her using spy cameras and then blackmailed her with the same for Rs 2 lakh.
As per the complainant, the woman had hired a domestic help named Shubham Kumar through a placement agency a few days back, PTI reported.
Cameras in bedroom
The woman alleged Kumar used to stay at their home and alleged that while working there he installed a spy camera in her bedroom and made objectionable videos of her.
Police said she came to know about the spy camera while cleaning her bedroom last week. She had fired the servant from work with immediate effect but did not move to the police, fearing slander.
