In a shocking incident, police found hidden cameras at a lodge in Periamet. Periamet Inspector Sivarajan visited the lodged and found cameras installed in the verandha. When he checked the footage, he realised the cameras angles were conveniently kept facing the bedrooms capturing everything happening in the privacy of the room occupants. When the police asked the lodge management, they said for safety purposes and nothing was illegal was taking place. However, based on the complaint and inquiry, they agreed to remove the cameras.

The hostel was just two-months old and the incident came to light after a woman software professional, joined the list of tenants.
