While the woman was alone at home, the Sanoj invited her to accompany him to a marriage ceremony. The unsuspecting woman agreed and rode pillion with Sanoj.

As part of the planning, Sanoj’s friends–Satya Mallick and Umesh Bhoi – were waiting at Baidipalli village forest. Instead of taking his aunt to the marriage ceremony, Sanoj took her aunt to the forest where Satya and Umesh allegedly raped her and filmed the acts on a mobile phone.
