The court sent him to 14-days of judicial custody. Accused in many other cases, Rai went absconding after the court declared him a proclaimed offender last month. The rape case against Rai was registered on May 1 at Lanka police station after a woman alleged that he had been sexually harassed her.
In April, a college student accused Rai of rape after he allegedly took her home on the pretext of meeting his wife. Rai denied the charges and sought protection from arrest to the Supreme Court, but was denied.
