A 26-year-old PhD student from IIT-B was allegedly raped on campus by a member of the non-teaching staff on Saturday. The girl has been admitted to Rajawadi Hospital.


"As soon as we found out about the incident, we handed over the alleged offender to the police," said Jaya Joshi, the PRO at IIT-B.

"The medical report isn't out yet and the girl has not filed a complaint. She is in the ICU."

IIT-B sources said the accused had called the girl to his house on campus on the pretext of introducing her to his wife. The victim knew him as they played badminton together. She invited a friend, who did not accompany her. At his house, she found his wife not at home. He offered her coffee, which made her feel unwell.

The victim called a friend saying she wasn't feeling well. Soon after, her friends on the campus reached the staff member's house and found the girl unconscious in the bedroom. The accused, who by then was in his office, said he knew nothing about the incident. The friend took her to Rajawadi Hospital.
