New Delhi: Former AISA president and JNU student Anmol Ratan, who is accused of raping a fellow student, is likely to apply for an anticipatory bail in the Patiala House court in Delhi on Tuesday.
However, his bail plea is likely to be opposed by the Delhi Police0.
A case of sexual assault was filed against Ratan on Monday by a 28-year-old JNU student.
In her complaint, the woman alleged that Ratan sexually assaulted her in his room in the Brahmaputra hostel.
She said the accused offered her a copy of a movie she had been looking for and took her to his room where he gave her a drink spiked with sedatives.
She told the police that he raped her when she was unconscious and later threatened her to not report the matter.
The incident has triggered a protest in the JNU campus with several ABVP leaders demanding rustication of the accused and AISA activist.
The ABP has also initiated an aggressive social media campaign against Anmol's alleged crime under the title of "Bekhauf Azadi" (Unbridled Freedom).
Meanwhile, the AISA and other Left-leaning outfits have distanced themselves from the incident and appealed to the administration to act immediately against the accused.
