Crime: Victoria police in Melbourne, Australia, confirmed that they have registered a case involving a Bhutanese man for allegedly filming his housemates while they took showers.

The Victoria police media officer, Belinda Batty, said they forwarded the case to the Victoria court recently. However, she did not provide details as there is an appeal period.

Belinda Batty, in an email interview with Kuensel, said police will only be able to provide what the charges are. “We are waiting on this information,” the media officer said.

Kuensel learnt that the incident occurred on November 2 when a Bhutanese woman, while taking a shower, found her housemate’s mobile phone on video mode in the pocket of a pair of pants hanging in the bathroom.

A source in Melbourne said that when the woman realised that she had been filmed, she deleted the video and went to tell her other housemate, who on inspection of the mobile phone found two more videos of another housemate showering. The two videos were found in the accused’s mobile phone’s trash.

It was also learnt that the victims reported the crime on November 3.

Kuensel sources in Melbourne said the victims are reportedly traumatised by the incident and one of them is undergoing counselling.
