Delhi Police have registered a case against a leading TV channel journalist after a complaint of rape by a woman, a senior Delhi Police officer said on Saturday night.

Additional Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) BK Singh said the woman told them that she met the journalist in 2016 and he offered her a job in the channel which she joined in April 2017.

"She alleged that she was raped by the man on June 9 last year at his residence on the pretext of marriage and several times later on," the officer said.
