It said Ratan apparently messaged her saying that he had a copy. Thereafter, he picked her up on Saturday on the pretext of giving her a CD of the film and took her to Brahamputra Hostel, where he stays.

She said in the complaint that he offered her a spiked drink and allegedly raped her. He also threatened her and asked her to not report the matter.

However, the woman approached the police on Sunday and a case of rape was registered and further investigation is underway.

When contacted AISA said it has taken strong note of the allegations and has expelled Ratan from the membership.

"AISA takes serious note of the fact that Anmol Ratan, a leading activist of AISA, is facing a criminal complaint of sexual assault. He is, henceforth, expelled from the primary membership of AISA.

"AISA will reflect on and deal with this issue with all the firmness it deserves. AISA will be unflinching for the principles of gender justice even if it involves a leading member of the organisation. We stand by the complainant in her fight for justice," Ashutosh Kumar, AISA Delhi State Secretary, said.
