JNU student Anmol Ratan, accused of raping a 28-year-old fellow student in the university hostel, was today remanded to 14 days judicial custody by a Delhi court.

A magisterial court at Patiala House courts complex sent Ratan to jail after Delhi Police decided not to seek his
custody. The court also directed jail authorities to provide him proper medical facilities after he submitted that he was suffering from heart ailment.

Ratan, accused of raping a first-year Ph.D student on August 20, had surrendered before the police last night, hours after the victim recorded her statement before a magistrate. The victim in her complaint at Vasant Kunj (North) police station had said she had posted on her Facebook that she wanted to watch a movie and had asked if anyone had its CD.

Ratan apparently messaged her saying he had a copy. Later, he picked her up on August 20 on the pretext of giving
her the CD and took her to Brahamputra Hostel, where he stayed. There he allegedly offered her a spiked drink and
raped her.

Ratan, an AISA activist, was expelled from the association after being accused of rape. In a statement, AISA said, “The accused in the complaint of sexual violence in JNU has surrendered to the police. But that is not enough. The Delhi Police is playing shameful role in leaking information to the media regarding identity of the complainant as well as details of the incident stated in her deposition.”
