The police said that Singh had called a woman for some household work in his official residence in Dehri town of the district, locked the door as soon as she entered, and allegedly molested her. She managed to run to the roof and shouted for help. Soon, a large number of neighbours assembled outside and managed to rescue her.

Seeing a woman slapping a man, passersby came to her support and thrashed the trio. The JD-U leader had to run into the women police station to save himself.
