JNU rape case: Accused Anmol Ratan surrenders

New Delhi: In a major development in the Jawahar Lal Nehru University's (JNU) rape case that took place on August 20, the accused AISA activist Anmol Ratan has surrendered at Delhi's Vasant Kunj area (North) Police station. 
Earlier on Tuesday, Ratan had moved an anticipatory bail application before Additional Sessions Judge Amit Bansal who posted the matter for further hearing on August 27. In his bail plea, Ratan told the court that case against him is politically motivated.
A Delhi court recorded the statement of the 28-year-old PhD student on Tuesday, who had alleged of rape by Anmol.
During in-camera proceedings, Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Sarvaria recorded the victim's statement. The recording of the statement remained inconclusive and had to be continued today. 
The victim had said on August 20, Anmol picked her up from her hostel and took her to his hostel named Brahmputra to give her the film.  He offered her some drink which was spiked with a sedative and then sexually assaulted her.
