A 28-year-old JNU student has filed a rape case against a fellow student and leader of the AISA, the student wing of the CPI (M-L), accusing him of raping her in a hostel room on the university campus, police said Sunday.
The woman, a Ph.D student, alleged that Anmol Ratan, also a Ph.D student, offered her a copy of the movie Sairat that she was looking for, took her to his hostel room and offered her a spiked drink.
She told police that he raped her when she was unconscious. He also threatened her and asked her not to report the matter.
Ratan was state president of the AISA until last year. AISA said it was expelling him from the organisation and would stand by the complainant.
Police said they have registered a case of rape and criminal intimidation against Ratan on the complaint of the woman. He has not yet been arrested.
