“All that could be recovered from his room was a laptop on which he had been typing a sort of ramble about his recollection from the night of the crime in a word file,” said a senior police officer.
The police, however, said though there was no direct evidence in its regard, they were investigating whether the complaint of sexual assault alleged against him was ‘motivated’.
“Investigation is still under way and is open-ended. We first need the complainant’s version of events as they unfolded during the night that she spent at his residence,” an officer said.
A resident of Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh and alumni of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Anwar was the executive director of the NGO Institute for Social Justice (ISJ).
He was accused of rape by a 24-year old who was active during the December 16 gang rape protests. His body was found around 10:30am on Wednesday.
