SHE teams, a division of Telangana Police for enhanced safety and security of women, caught these men red-handed while misbehaving with women by touching them inappropriately, stalking them and taking their pictures near Ganesh pandals across the city.
SHE team members who were incognito in the crowd in civil dress with secret cameras arrested the accused who were deliberately touching and harassing women.
The accused were produced before the Nampally Court with sufficient evidence and the trial court slapped a fine of Rs 250 on them and sentenced them to jail for a period ranging from two to 10 days.
"It is not easy to escape from the eyes of SHE teams no matter where the place is, no matter how huge the crowd is," said Additional Commissioner of Police (Crimes & SIT, SHE Team & Bharosa), A.R. Srinivas
"It is your ignorance if you think your unethical acts of behaving indecently with women will not be caught by the hidden cameras of Hyderabad SHE teams. SHE teams ensure that the accused are punished by producing proper evidence before the courts," he said.
The official advised youth not to stain their precious life because of silly and dirty pleasures.
He said on the occasion of Ganesh festival, the Hyderabad SHE team had its footprint at all pandals under the Hyderabad Commissionerate.
