The FIR woman’s statement read: “I had met Ramesh Jarkiholi for a documentary. At the time, he promised a job in the government and spoke with concern. He asked me to cooperate in all ways with him for the job and I trusted him. From Karnataka Bhavan in Delhi, he made a video call to me and motioned for me to undress, I did. Later, he invited me to his apartment saying he wanted to talk about my work. There he developed physical contact with me. Later, he abused me for asking (for) the job. After the sex CD went viral in the media, life threats were made against me and my family. I am seeking legal action against the accused for exploiting me sexually under the pretext of giving me a job in the government ”.
