No citizen can punish another under any circumstances. The citizen has to file such a complaint with the police and the law takes its own course.

In response to your query,
To answer your query there are a number of elements that must be taken into account. But here are some points to make you understand the meaning of photography with or without consent.
If you're on someone's private property, it's perfectly lawful to videotape whatever and anyone you want.
If a person is on public property, such as a road, you can film them unless they object, in which case the person must blur the faces of others who were unintentionally videotaped. Alternatively, have them sign a no objection form stating that they are okay with being filmed with audio and broadcast on television or the internet.
You don't need a license or permission to shoot it unless you're on someone else's land or government property. The police, on the other hand, are not required to obtain such consent or authorization.
If they are not committing any crime, a person video graphing them cannot refuse their request. If there is a crime, a person's morale can deteriorate.
The right to privacy is guaranteed to anybody who is being filmed. However, one must demonstrate that he or she was not at a publicly visible location in order to do so.

No facts have been posted for consideration and obligation of experts.
It would be better to consult a local prudent lawyer for appreciation of facts/ documents and professional advise, if there is any dispute / problem and it is not a "time pass" query.
