The victim and the accused had first started interacting on Facebook and were also in touch over phone which have been seized for forensic tests, a senior police officer said on Thursday.

Accused Anmol Ratan, who on Wednesday night surrendered at the Vasant Kunj(North) police station, was questioned for several hours during which he maintained that the victim is his friend but denied the allegations against him, the officer said.

The accused was on Thursday remanded in 14 days judicial custody by a Delhi court.

The victim's statement was recorded by a magistrate Wednesday, wherein she stood by her charge of rape against the accused.

She had accused Anmol of raping her in a JNU hostel after offering her a spiked drink on 20 August.
