An employee of McDonald’s has been accused of videotaping women in the ladies toilet of their Thane franchise. Shilpa Yogdeep Goparde, 30 a customer who visited the washroom has filed a police complaint on Saturday evening after she found a cell phone being put on the video recording mode placed over an air vent in a toilet at McDonald’s Ghodbunder Road outlet in Thane.

Initial investigations revealed that the camera had been placed by Sachin Waghmare, 26, a member of the cleaning staff, who is currently absconding.

Thane resident Yogdeep Korpade, 31, his wife Shilpa, 30,and five-year-old son Grahiesh visited the restaurant at 4 pm on Saturday. “My wife wanted to visit the loo before we left, but the housekeeping staff asked her to wait while they cleaned the toilet. However, when she went in, the toilet was still unclean. That made her suspicious and she began to look around. She then saw a light blinking in the vent above,” said Korpade.

Alarmed, she informed her husband, who in turn summoned the restaurant’s manager. The staff immediately identified the mobile as that of Waghmare. However, by then Waghmare, a resident of Sai Nagar slums, was nowhere to be seen.

“It was very suspicious the way he stopped me from entering the loo. My suspicion only grew stronger when I saw the loo was dirty. He, obviously, had spent the time inside doing something else. When I looked around, I saw this camera-like object lying on the air vent,” said Shilpa after filing the complaint.

Shilpa added, “The staff told us that they would immediately conduct a check but later said that one of their staffers was absconding. We wondered how many such videos of unsuspecting women had been taken, so we decided to file an FIR.”

A complaint has been lodged under Section 509 IPC (word, gesture or act intended to outrage a woman’s modesty) at the Kasarwadvali Police Station and the pervert’s mobile and memory card have been seized.

Meanwhile, a McDonald’s spokesperson stated, “We are co-operating with the customer and have filed a police complaint along with the customer. We have suspended the employee pending the result of the investigation. We are assisting the police with the investigation to bring the culprit to book at the earliest as for us the customer always comes first”

Now who knows hat how many such clips were recorded and later circulated or posted on the Internet. So public be alert when using public toilets.
