Delhi Hotel Employee's Saree Pulled By Senior, She Complained And Was Fired

The security chief at a five-star hotel in New Delhi has been accused of molesting a female executive, media reports have said. The arrest on the July 30 complaint filed by the woman came after a CCTV footage of the alleged incident surfaced in which the accused is purportedly seen trying to pull the woman's sari.

The security manager allegedly also grabbed the woman, who worked in guest relations, after she left for home, and tried to pull her into his auto twice. She added that she left the hotel on foot, while the accused followed her in his Etios auto, rolled down the window and grabbed her by the hand, insisting that she sit inside his vehicle."I somehow managed to free myself and got to Delhi Aerocity Metro station, where I called up m". She claimed that Dahiya assaulted her by calling her in a hotel room.

She reported the incident to the company's Human Resources Department the same day.

"After the woman lodged a complaint, a case was registered and the evidence she gave was being cross-checked".

The woman who was working in the guest relations department of the hotel told in her complaint that the security manager also tried to pull her into his vehicle not once but twice on the same night. The colleague who helped her with the footage was sacked too.

The hotel's PR officer told ANI that the accused has been suspended.

Meanwhile, the hotel has also suspended the accused security manager. But when "she was leaving his cabin, he tried to pull her saree, which was seen in the footage".

"The CCTV footage was concocted and doctored", alleged the accused. "We have also submitted all the required documents of employment to the investigators, who had approached us", said Pride Plaza Hotel spokesperson Raja Singh. They said the investigation was still on and further action would be taken if anyone, including the hotel management, was found to be at fault. The incident took place inside the premises of the hotel and was captured on a CCTV camera.
