Masseur arrested for facial treatment with saliva in Lko after video goes viral | Lucknow News

LUCKNOW: A masseur/hairdresser of a salon in Lucknow was arrested for giving facial massage to a customer using his saliva within the Sushant Golf City police station limits.

A case was opened after the customer suspected the hairdresser of doing something bad and demanded to show him the surveillance camera footage in which the accused can be seen smearing his saliva on the customer's face.

The incident occurred on June 1 at the Prithvi Raj Puram canteen in the area.

“Based on the complaint of customer Pandit Ashish Kumar, a resident of Unnao, an FIR was registered on Saturday under IPC 295 A (malicious act) and 269 (act likely to spread disease or dangerous to life),” said South Deputy Commissioner of Police Shashank Singh, adding that further action would be taken.

“According to a customer's complaint, Lucknow police took the accused Zaid into custody on Sunday and remanded him in judicial custody,” the ADCP added.

The plaintiff Pandit Ashish Kumar, who works in a canteen, went to the salon in Ahaimamau area where the accused Zaid works as a hairdresser, for a massage on June 11.

The CCTV footage that went viral on social media showed Zaid giving a massage to a customer in the parlor. After some time, he spat on his palm and started massaging the customer's face. The video also shows him repeating the action two to three times. According to Kumar, he was initially unaware of the act but later he became suspicious about Zaid's action and checked the CCTV camera installed in the parlor and later filed a police complaint.

Just a week later, a similar video surfaced in Shamli of a hairdresser performing a massage using saliva. The employee first applied cream on the customer's face and then repeatedly spat into his palm while using the same palm to massage his face as soon as the customer closed his eyes.

This video is from Bhandeda Udda village in Bhawan area of ​​Shamli police station. The accused has been identified as Amjad, a resident of Bhandeda village. After the video was circulated on the internet, Shamli police filed a complaint and arrested the accused.
