Despite the victim's protests, Shriram reportedly forcibly pulled her into a room, where he made unwanted advances towards her.

Distressed by the ordeal, the victim confided in her husband about the incident. Upon learning of the situation, a friend of the victim's husband intervened and captured footage of Shriram's alleged misconduct on his mobile phone. In the video, Shriram can be seen attempting to coerce the victim.
