Nurse in Bengaluru filmed hostel inmates to impress voyeur boyfriend | Bengaluru News – Times of India


Prabhu, the boyfriend of Ashwini

BENGALURU: Investigation into the Whitefield case where inmates of a women’s hostel were being secretly filmed while bathing has witnessed a voyeuristic twist. The arrested nurse has revealed she was recording other women to ensure that her kinky boyfriend married her.
Prabhu, 35, the boyfriend of Ashwini, 25, is now in police custody. A staff nurse at a private hospital, Ashwini was nabbed after security guards at the hostel found her mobile phone capturing the video of a woman in the bathroom on December 5.
Preliminary probe revealed Ashwini’s phone contained nude videos of other colleagues as well, which she had shared with Prabhu. The nurse claimed she had no idea what he was doing with them.
“It was a serious situation. We had to act fast and find out if the videos were uploaded on social media platforms or were recorded to blackmail the women who had no idea they had been filmed,” said deputy commissioner of police (Whitefield) D Devaraj.
Police acted swiftly and picked up Prabhu from Tamil Nadu. After questioning the duo and a thorough search of their mobiles and memory cards, police said the videos had not been further circulated by Prabhu.
“Ashwini, from Tamil Nadu, is a divorcee. She wanted to marry Prabhu and recorded the videos on his demand to impress him,” Devaraj added. He has been charged with allegedly abetting his girlfriend.
Police have seized two mobiles belonging to Ashwini and Prabhu and sent them for forensic examination. The duo has been booked under IPC Section 354C (voyeurism) and sent to Central Prison.
Police have appealed to citizens to watch out for secret cameras or mobile phones while using trial rooms in apparel stores, restrooms in shopping complexes, pubs and restaurants and during stays in hotels to avoid becoming targets of voyeurs.
Their love affair began with a wrong number

The duo’s relationship started in 2017 after Prabhu, cook in a Chennai hotel, dialled a wrong number and ended up speaking to Ashwini. They began chatting and soon developed a friendship. Later, Ashwini expressed her desire to marry him. While Prabhu agreed initially, he started avoiding her after getting to know that Ashwini was a divorcee.
“That’s when Ashwini told Prabhu she was ready to do whatever he wanted. He told her to record a video of her colleague while bathing and send it to him. She agreed. With his demands increasing, she filmed four of her colleagues,” police said. Prabhu told cops he derived voyeuristic pleasure from watching the videos and deleted them later.
