Thimphu police arrested the 74-year-old man, whose videos with young women went viral on social media during the lockdown, on January 18.

A woman, who was in one of the videos, lodged the case against the man on December 31 but police could not arrest the man, as he resided in a ‘red building’ in Changzamtok.

Police arrested him on January 18 after they got clearance from the health ministry that the building is no more a Covid-19 hotspot.

Police, however, said they would not comment until the lockdown was completely lifted.

It was learnt that there are four cases registered against the man for sharing such videos.

A woman, whose private videos with the man went viral since May last year, had already registered a harassment case against the man. She is waiting for police to charge the case to court.
