At the party, she was introduced to the accused. After the party ended around 1.30am, she decided to return home with her friend but as her phone was not working, the accused offered to book them a private cab.

When the cab arrived, he sat in the front seat and offered to drop them home.

The complainant thanked him but allegedly stressed that they did not want him to come with them in the cab. However, the accused ignored their request and went along.
