Goa Police will question two top executives of Fabindia on Friday in connection with the trial room camera episode involving its outlet at Candolim.

The Goa Crime Branch had earlier summoned Fabindia's Chief Executive Officer Subrata Dutta and Managing Director William Bissel to appear before the investigators in connection with the voyeurism case.

"We have received reply from Fabindia's CEO and MD that they will appear before police on Friday," Superintendent of Police (Crime Branch) Kartik Kashyap told PTI.

Police have also summoned the company's Board of Directors, who are likely to be quizzed tomorrow, he said.

"Various people associated with Fabindia are being questioned today," Superintendent Kashyap added.

Police had yesterday interrogated the company's Candolim store manager Chaitrali Sawant, who was granted anticipatory bail by a local court on Monday.

 

Earlier, four employees of the company's outlet in Candolim had been arrested after Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani, who visited the store on April 3, alleged that it had a CCTV camera focusing at the trial room.

They were booked under sections 354C, 509 of the Indian Penal Code and IT Act's section 66E.

Fabindia has denied it had placed hidden cameras in any of its stores, holding that the camera in question was part of the surveillance system.
