Paal Ghosh took to Twitter to reveal ‘little bit of details’ that it did not ‘hurt anybody’ as she dared the ‘culprit’ to come out and ‘refute’ it. She also asked if her story did not ignite the ‘woman in you’ or the ‘human craving for justice’.
In the video, she is heard saying, “I am talking about a scary experience that happened with me. I knew Mr Kashyap through Facebook, and I accepted his invitation to come to his office; then he invited me to his home and I went. We ate food together and talked and I returned from there.”
“On the second day, when he called me, he was drinking as well as smoking something, which had a strange smell and I started feeling pukish, so I asked him what it was and he replied that it was ganja,” she continued.
“Then he took me to the other room, adjacent to it which had a shelf like a library and cassettes were in it. There was a sofa too, that’s where he tried to force himself upon me and tried to enter me. When I denied, he took names of many girls to try to convince me, (Section) 376 has been applied so you can understand what might have happened,” Payal revealed.
She concluded, “I am fighting alone, as I can’t see anyone, because there are a lot of fake people here. I won’t leave this battle till receiving justice. Thanking all who have lent their support.”
A little bit of details and truth hurt nobody. Let the culprit come and refute it and let’s find out the truth. . If this doesn’t ignite the woman in you and the human in you craving for justice, don’t know what will. #FightTillTheEnd pic.twitter.com/n6Ki4Et15l
