The video was circulated widely on social media.
The ‘love act’ happened between the Air India Building and Marine Hotel Plaza, on the busy thoroughfare of Marine Drive, also known as Queen’s Necklace. The incident occurred barely a stone’s throw away from the Maharashtra state government headquarters.
While pedestrians shot a video of the act, someone alerted the Police Control Room which rushed a mobile van from Marine Drive Police Station there.
Seeing the police, the couple entangled, adjusted their clothes and quickly crossed the road to the other side, dodging the heavy traffic.
Police were able to catch the woman however the man, who appeared to be a foreign national, managed to escape. Police are trying to apprehend the man.
When the police questioned the woman, she claimed she was from Goa, but later backtracked and gave confusing replies. She also claimed they were just kissing. No charges have been pressed yet.
According to police, the woman appeared to be mentally unstable and has been sent to the Mahila Suraksha Kendra in Chembur. Further investigations are on, police told news agency IANS.
