She realised that Twab and Sulaiman had sexually assaulted her when she was unconscious. The next day the girl, a second year BA (Hons)student went to her hostel in JNU and told her friends what happened. Her friends pressurised her to file a complaint after which she did the necessary.

She was taken to a nearby hospital for medical examination. Twaab and Ahmadi have been booked under section 376 of Indian Penal Code for committing rape. Twab and Sulaiman are both Afghan nationals living in refugee camps in Delhi.
