Staff of Atlantic Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos, have accused the management of sacking a female worker for reporting attempted an rape by a certain Sanjiv Raut, an Indian National.

Sources say Raut had sneaked into the lady's room when she was sleeping and attempted to rape her but was overpowered and outmuscled by the lady.

It was said that she later reported the case on the hotel's WhatsApp platform, but instead of Raut being sacked, the victim was fired the following day.

Workers of the same hotel revealed that another staff was harassed by the same man.

"The lady was recently harassed by Sanjiv Raut inside the hotel’s kitchen this week.

“As the lady was about entering the kitchen, Raut started calling her sweet names, so she responded and asked if he wanted some chocolate she was eating but he declined.

“As she turned to leave the kitchen, Raut smacked her buttocks with his hand in the presence of other staff and started laughing.

“He has from time to time harassed other Nigerian female staff at the hotel and some even get sacked for speaking up.

“This particular lady has been crying for the humiliation because if she reports to the management they will sack her instead of punishing the Indian.

"We are all tired of this sexual harassment by this Indian on daily basis,” a staff of the hotel told newsmen in Lagos.

Sanjiv Raut has refused to comment on the accusations against him.

The Hotel Management has denied this allegations and have said it's false.
