Mumbai: A chauffeur has been arrested on the complaint of actor Chinmayee Surve, wife of actor Sumeet Raghavan, for allegedly masturbating outside a school in Vile Parle.

Ms Surve was near Parle Tilak School on Monday morning, when she saw the accused, Jivan Chaudhary (43), who was in a safari suit, allegedly masturbating inside a white BMW.

Ms Surve shot Chaudhary a disgusted look, but he allegedly refused to stop and further rolled down the passenger seat’s window. When the actor marched towards him to take him to task, he sped off in the vehicle.

In her haste, Ms Surve managed to note down only the last four digits of the car’s number — 1985.

Ms Surve then contacted Mr Raghavan — who took to social networking platforms Facebook and Twitter where he shared her ordeal — and registered a complaint with the Vile Parle police.

An FIR was then registered under section 509 of the Indian Penal Code, which pertains to acts insulting the modesty of a woman.  

The police nabbed Chaudhary within two hours of the complaint’s registration.

“The police tracked CCTV footage of the vicinity and located Chaudhary, who is also a resident of the same locality,” said Anil Kumbhare, deputy commissioner of police Zone 8.

Expressing gratitude to the police for its prompt action, Mr Raghavan said, “The incident is really disgusting, and somebody had to take a stand. Who knows if the same man had victimised little girls too? I salute the Mumbai police who nabbed him in such a short amount of time.”
