Auto driver Muruli said, "I have known the doctor for quite some time and he asked me to get food to the club and I did. They had already consumed alcohol and they forced me to consume it. Further, Rakesh asked me to bring another doctor called Swamy from the hospital. I brought him in my auto. When I returned, Rakesh scolded me for coming late and alleged that I abused his friend in front of others. My caste was also abused. They locked me inside a bathroom and beat me up with beer bottles and other objects. They urinated in my mouth and on my body as well."

Muruli has lodged a complaint in Bangalore police station about the incident and the main accused was arrested by the police.
