She looks like any other normal woman shopper, but her mysterious actions have annoyed the staff and shop owners at The Celebration Mall’s from last few days. As a result, she was denied entry into the mall today by the managing authorities.Introducing herself as Pratibha Yadav from Etv – a multi language TV channel of India, this fashionable young lady has become the topic of discussion at the Celebration Mall, Udaipur.
However, Ravi – Etv’s In-charge for Udaipur has rejected her claim saying that there no one working for Etv named Pratibha Yadav, also the head of the channel has not confirmed her identity.
So who is this self proclaimed TV reporter?
Nobody exactly knows about the whereabouts of Pratibha, according to one of the shopkeeper at the Mall, she is regularly visiting the mall from the last 4-5 days, more shocking is the fact that she comes to the mall before any security staff arrives on duty, then she roams around everywhere in the mall, sitting idle, then disappears suddenly and comes back again and stays till late night in the mall compound.
One female security staff says that ‘she knows each and everything about the mall, like which shop opens at what time? How many shops are here? She even knows how many CCTV cameras are installed in the mall and their location.”
Today when we got information about her arrival in the mall our reporter reached there to have a look of this mysterious woman in her late 20s. Clad in trendy outfits, carrying a purse and a mobile phone she was busy ‘inspecting’ the mall.
Many other local reporters too arrived at the Mall, this alerted Pratibha and she tried to escape the scene.
She got annoyed while some reporters were trying to capture her in the camera out of her anxiety she fell in an altercation with them and warned them of grave consequences.
The Mall authority says “at first she was quite normal but soon she started behaving weird with the customers and neglected the instruction from security, we’d forcefully taken her out of the mall and instructed our security in charge not to let her enter the mall.” This order comes from the mall manager Nisha Doshi
Pratibha is well versed in Hindi and English, she is also fluent in Sanskrit and she knows a number of shlokas by heart. While talking to security women she told them that she is going for a meeting with Etv Head named Jamal, but, Jamal is not the Etv head but a local cameraman working for the channel.
According to a secretly recorded audio video footage, while talking to the security personnel she told them that she stays in a hostel in Dabok, she also said that she is pursuing PhD from Lokmanya Tilak College.
All over the complete scene puts a question on the security of the biggest Mall of Udaipur -The Celebration Mall.
However, this girl is now strictly prohibited to enter the mall but her identity is still unclear.
No police complaint has been registered by the authorities nor is any official from the mall ready to comment on it.
