Here is the Facebook post
“The incident happened when I had passed out from 12th standard (around the year 2003 - 2004) in Trivandrum, Kerala...,” she wrote.
“One day, Rahul invited me to his house, saying his mother is also there and we all can have a discussion... When I entered his flat, I got the wind that his mother was not there. I started to get a little scared. I was very young and naive.
“He said, his mother just left and will be back. So I sat down as he invited me. He had put on some movie which was soft porn. I started to feel very uneasy. Then he started to give me a tour of his flat. He showed a room and said that is his bedroom. Then he started to touch me and kiss me,” the woman alleged.
Rahul, president of the 'Ayyappa Dharma Sena', was arrested on Sunday for his alleged provocative statement related to the entry of women into the Lord Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala.
MyNation was unable to contact Easwar for his response as he is in police custody.
