How did the incident took place

The victim who hails from Bengaluru had checked in a room at Hotel Piccadilly in Sector 22, Chandigarh. When the power of her room went off she complained it to the hotel authorities.

The hotel authorities then sent an electrician, to the victim’s room where he found it to be the technical fault. After fixing it, the electrician left the room and then again called her few hours later to recheck whether everything is fine. The victim then confirmed him that there isn’t any problem but he still came to her room on the pretext of rechecking it. It was then he allegedly tried to molest the lady.

He entered the hotel room forcefully and it was then that he allegedly tried to molest the lady.
