The incident involved a medical college employee who was arrested in connection with the molestation of a woman within the medical college hospital. It was alleged that some colleagues of the accused, Saseendran, threatened the survivor to protect him. The survivor lodged a written complaint with the medical college superintendent regarding this matter.

The survivor stated in her complaint that nursing assistants, hospital attendants, and daily wage workers had entered her room and coerced her into changing her statement. It was alleged that they insisted on reaching a settlement by receiving compensation for saying her statements given to the magistrate, police, and hospital authorities under CrPC-164 were false.

Upon receiving the written complaint, the superintendent submitted a report to the investigative committee formed to examine the harassment allegations. Subsequently, five employees were suspended.
