So far, the statements of the survivor, her mother the doctor, who examined the woman after the 2016 incident, have been taken by the police.

The case in question was first reported in 2016 when the survivor was allegedly raped. In June this year, Mayookha Johny had conducted a press conference in which she mentioned the alleged sexual assault of her friend and alleged the Kerala police of inaction.

She claimed that the Kerala police earlier promised action against the accused but later stepped back after certain influential people were involved in the case.
