Last month, Delhi Police charge sheeted Farooqui under sections dealing with rape and destruction of evidence for allegedly raping a 35-year-old American national.

The victim, who is pursuing Ph.D. from Columbia University, was in India for research work.

Farooqui is in judicial custody since June 20.
