Jailed: Aaron Lal: British Transport Police

A pervert has been jailed for filming up women’s skirts as they travelled on the Tube.

Aaron Lal, 32, targeted female commuters as they travelled on the London Underground network between June and October last year.

He was caught by officers after a passenger saw him filming up a woman’s skirt on the Victoria Line on July 15, British Transport Police said.

A second passenger travelling in the same carriage also reported it to police.

Officers arrested Lal, of Dangan Road, Wanstead, and discovered more footage on his mobile phone which showed he had repeatedly been filming up women’s skirts on the Tube network.

He was sentenced to four months in prison after pleading guilty to five counts of outraging public indecency at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Police Sergeant Dan Rushall said: “I am really pleased that this multiple offender has been brought to justice.

"Behaviour like this will never be tolerated on the transport network and I urge people to report any unwanted sexual behaviour to us so people like Lal can be brought to justice.”
