The model has revealed how events unfolded that night. Megha Sharma said she had called the watchman to get her cigarettes via intercom to which he refused. She asked him that since 3-4 guards are standing outside the gate, could any of them get her a smoke. The guard denied again but gave her the contact of a cigarette-shop owner. She went down and got herself a smoke. On the way she spoke to the guard why did not he ask one of the watchmen to go.

She said that the guard called her “characterless” and commented upon her dress. She added that the guard said “We are not here to treat you like a princess.” Angry at this, she hit the guard. Soon, another watchman joined the argument and started hurling abuses at her. She herself called the police and a Oshiwara police station team arrived soon, the report said.
The model said she narrated the whole incident to the cops while the security guard stayed mum. Megha said they did not speak a word when cops interrogated them. The cops then asked her to come to the police station but she politely refused at first. She said that since there is no lady constable available, she would go to the police station the next morning. Megha said she did not feel comfortable and safe going with the police wearing what she was wearing.
The model claimed but the cops kept insisting that she had to come with them. When she tried to go, 8-10 men surrounded her and tried to take her out of the lift. The cops were reiterating that she would have to go to the police station, the report said.
She said that she had even agreed to go with them but she wanted to go change into something comfortable. But the cops did not allow her to do so. She said that she went blank and her mind stopped working. She took off her clothes in a fit of rage. She said it was her life’s most mortifying incident. The model said that she was afraid that even in presence of the cops that she could have been raped.
