News Footage ex India with CCTV capturing the event ..... don't ask me to translate, I have no idea what they're saying.
A 17-year-old girl was returning from the
market when suddenly she was grabbed and her assailant attempted to drag her
into an alley. This happened right outside her own home. When the girl screamed
and put up a fight the young man fled. Unknown to him there was a witness --
the CCTV camera mounted on a corner of the girl's house.
All this happened on Monday morning at about 11.30
in Badal Colony of Khuda Ali Sher. Police identified the youth as Gurvinder
Singh alias Binderi, also of Khuda Ali Sher. A case of attempted rape under was
registered against him and the magistrate remanded him to police custody.
Investigating Officer Ramesh Kumar confirmed that
he had been charged under sections 376/512, 505, 342. Ramesh Kumar also said
that Gurvinder has had several brushes with the law and has at least four
criminal cases lodged against him.
The girl's mother said that the assailant is the
son of a panch of the village and has many other cases registered against him.
She said that in some previous incidents his influential parents had managed to
get cases against him dropped. She said that he has a long standing bad
reputation and many women have complained about his behaviour. She said that
many families in the village have put up CCTV cameras out of fear of attack or
theft. Now, with camera footage they will be able to prove the accusation
against the miscreant.
This is the first time that a person attempting to
commit a heinous offense has been caught in the act thanks to a CCTV camera.
With more and more people installing these devices, the city may not
necessarily become safer but the chance of catching culprits improves.
