They retrieved his phone and reportedly discovered photos and videos of half-naked beachgoers.
The lifeguards called the police, who arrived on the beach and also looked through the phone.
Officers claimed to have found photos and videos of women on Bronte beach that afternoon, and another set on November 19 on Bondi beach.
The photos mainly consisted of topless sunbathers on both beaches, according to police.
In other images, Pal reportedly zoomed in on women’s breasts and buttocks.
Pal, who currently lives in Parramatta, arrived in Australia from India last month on a work visa.
He allegedly felt guilty for taking the photos and told police, “If my wife back home in India knew she would hit me.”
