VANCOUVER DESI

An Indian-origin man in Britain has become the first person to have been banned from all 1,200 McDonald’s outlets in England and Wales after being caught spying on two women in the restaurant’s restrooms.

Sukhbir Singh, 32, sneaked into the ladies’ toilets at a branch of the fast food giant in Birmingham city centre where he hid in the cubicles and watched the women in February this year, said a report in the Hindustan Times.

Magistrates were told he was caught after being discovered by a customer who then alerted staff, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported.

Singh fled but CCTV operators tracked him from the restaurant and his image was passed to police officers.

Police arrested Singh, from Handsworth, Birmingham, 10 days later after he was recognised at junction 7 of the M6 motorway.

Singh was charged with another offence also originating from inside the restaurant chain against a second victim on Feb. 3.

He was handed an anti-social behaviour order banning him from women’s changing rooms, toilets and all 1,200 McDonald’s branches in England and Wales.

Singh denied the charges but was found guilty of secretly “observing another person doing a private act for sexual gratification” after a trial at Birmingham Magistrates Court on July 20.

It is the first time a Peeping Tom has been banned from the fast food chain after committing a sexual offence on the premises.

Singh was given a six-month conditional discharge and handed a 12-month community order. He was also ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid work and pay 50 pounds ($80) compensation to each victim and a further 620 pounds ($985) in court costs.
