A doctoral research scholar from the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) was arrested for allegedly raping a 26-year-old woman on the grounds of marriage, a police source stated on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Ajay Singh, who was pursuing Ph.D. at JNU, was arrested soon after the victim recorded her statement claiming that she was raped by him at the south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj police station, police source added.

A rape case was registered under section 376 of IPC against Singh on Tuesday evening, a senior police official told the media.
“The girl came to Delhi in 2010 and they were in a relationship since then. Despite requesting Singh several times, he was not marrying her and hence she approached the police,” an officer said.
