New Delhi: The 28-year-old JNU PhD scholar, who has alleged that she was raped by an AISA activist from the university, today recorded her statement before a magistrate.
“The woman stood by her charges in the statement recorded before the magistrate under Section 164 of CrPC,” said Nupur Prasad, additional DCP-I (South).
The victim was supposed to record her statement on Monday but it could not happen as she cited health issues. Yesterday, she was present in the court but the statement could not be recorded as by the time her turn came, it was late.
The accused AISA activist Anmol Ratan, a PhD scholar, is still absconding and has not joined the probe yet. Police is making efforts to catch him. The crime scene has been mapped.
Ratan had moved an anticipatory bail plea before a Delhi court yesterday. The petition was filed before Additional Sessions Judge Amit Bansal who put up the matter for arguments on the next date of hearing on August 27.
The victim had accused Ratan, a fellow scholar, of raping her after offering her a spiked drink in Brahmputra hostel of JNU, last week.
The accused was expelled from AISA after the rape allegation.
