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 PhD 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.
