The woman sustained injuries during the assault and was in a traumatised state after the incident. She filed a complaint to the police the next evening.

According to her complaint, two unidentified persons have entered her room at around 2.30 AM. One of them restrained her while the other man raped her.

Police have registered a case of rape on the basis of the victim’s statement. She has left for Bangalore.

CPI(M) leader V S Achuthanandan asked the state government to institute a criminal inquiry into the incident. He demanded, that the owner of the resort also be brought under the ambit of the probe for rendering the premises insecure for women despite the star-category status it holds.
