The victim submitted a CD as evidence against the accused. The CD was shot by another domestic help who was working at the residence of the former minister. Raghavji had been the finance minister of the state for the last nine years.

According to Raghavji, the man who has accused him of sexual exploitation worked part-time for him, occasionally massaged the minister's arms and legs, and had quit a month ago.
