The victim, a BCom graduate from Udupi, had appeared for the interview and was anticipating a call. She got a call from an unknown number and the caller introduced himself as Rohan from the HR team of the bank.

He claimed that she had failed to clear the final round of the test and told her to meet him outside the bank for a discussion. When she met him outside, he invited her to his home for a discussion, but she refused. Habeeb attempted to grab her and bundle her into his vehicle.

She escaped from him and ran inside the bank. She enquired with the staff about Rohan and realised that he had cooked up a story. She approached the police and lodged a complaint.
