The uploader identified the incident as transpiring at the renowned Lulu Mall, stating, “Recorded this incident today evening around 6.30 p.m. in Lulu Mall Funtura Bengaluru. This man in the video was doing such a thing to the random women and girls around here.
“Initially, when I observed his actions in a densely populated area, I became suspicious and began recording. Later, I discovered this footage. I reported the incident to the mall’s security. While we attempted to locate the man, he eluded us. Consequently, I informed the mall management and security, who assured us they would make efforts to identify the individual and take appropriate action. Shame on such individuals,” the whistleblower expressed.
