Deceived by Sharif’s charm, the victim agreed to meet him at an OYO room in Hebbal, believing it to be an introduction to his parents. However, upon arrival, she discovered that Sharif had misled her, as his parents were absent. The victim alleges that Sharif engaged in sexual relations with her, under the false promise of marriage.
Sharif continued to pursue the victim and engage in physical contact despite her objections. In the FIR, the victim stated that Sharif resorted to threats, warning her that he would marry someone else if she did not comply. Moreover, he demanded Rs 50,000 for a rented house, which the victim refused to pay.
