When they arrived at the show, they met the accused person in front of the hotel after pleasantries and attractions. They walked into the lobby where the accused introduced them to his cousin who was also at the show.
The complainant and her cousin took few pictures with the accused person, his cousin and other men. Accused, who admired the height of the complainant asked her and her cousin to accompany them to the hotel room to powder his face before the show because he will be on stage and he will be captured by TV camera.
The complainant and accused took one of the lifts to the third floor of the hotel and went into the room together with her cousin and the accused’s cousin.
They were offered drinks, but they refused and sat down. While there, the accused called the complainant to come and help him do make up in the washroom. The complainant obliged and entered the washroom leaving the two in the living room.
The Accused forcibly had sėx with the complainant in the washroom. A report was made to the police and a medical report was issued to the complainant to attend hospital. When the Accused was arrested, he denied the offence and stated that the complainant gave her consent and that he did not force her. He is, however, charged with the offence before this court.”
