During counselling, the teenage victim revealed that she had been sexually abused by her own father since she was 13.

On Tuesday, the local DYFI unit reportedly took out a protest march demanding justice for the victim. However, after the police started making arrests, it was revealed that a local DYFI leader, named Nikhil Mohanan (Nikhil Thaliyil) is one of the accused. A report by Asianet News had revealed that Nikhil was marching in a red jersey demanding justice for the victim.

The News Minute reported that the local district secretary of DYFI has confirmed Nikhil’s association with them. He has reportedly added that Nikhil has a drinking problem and hence he was not given any important positions.

The names of some of the other accused are Sandeep, Shamsuddin, Shabbir, Ayub, Pavithran, Achit Valsaraj and Mridul. The manager and receptionist of the lodge have also been arrested for facilitating the crime.
