As cited in the caption, he stated that he recorded the incident in the evening around 6:30 p.m. in Lulu Mall Funtura Bengaluru. “This man in the video was doing such a thing to random women and girls around here,” the caption read.
Expressing concern and taking action, the whistleblower continued, “First when I saw him in a very crowded area, I felt suspicious about him and followed him, recording the video. Then I got this.’ Subsequently, he said that he went to security and complained about this. “Then we went in search of him but we missed. So informed the mall management and security, and they said they’ll try to find that person and take action. Shame on such people,” he added, as mentioned in the post.
