PANAJI: Fabindia bosses, including CEO, MD and 9 other employees, were summoned by Goa police on Tuesday for questioning in connection with the Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani’s voyeurism case.

The Crime Branch issued summons to Fabindia’s Managing Director (MD) William Bissell and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Subrata Dutta and asked to join the investigation into this case.

Meanwhile, defending Fabindia in hidden camera case, Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar said, the company cannot be blamed for the mischief played by some employees at its store.

The four accused persons were arrested by Calangute police after Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani alleged that it had a CCTV camera focusing at the trial room but later they were released on conditional bail on Saturday evening. 

Last week, Union Minister Smriti Irani, who had visited the Fabindia store along with her husband during a two-day visit to Goa, spotted a hidden camera in the Fabindia store facing at the trial room. 

The voyeurism case was filed against the outlet’s staff after Irani alleged that it had a CCTV camera focusing at the trial room.
