As she had a train via Delhi, she decided to take a halt and meet Paras who then asked her to stay here and even assured to help her find a job. On his assurance, she stayed with him in a rented accommodation in Raju Park, the officer added.

But as the days went by, the accused reportedly began abusing her physically and even sexually, the officer claimed, citing the lady. The officer went on to say that Paras even reportedly "poured hot dal (lentils) over her" at one point, causing burn injuries.
