Sandeep arrested after a woman files rape case
NEW DELHI: Delhi ex-minister Sandeep Kumar was arrested on Saturday night, hours after a 40 year old woman filed a case stating that a year ago he drugged her and then raped, according to the reports.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Vikramjit Singh said, “the complaint was filed at Sultanpuri police station and Sandeep has been booked for rape, amongst other charges.
The 40 year old woman said that she was approached by an NGO after the video was gone viral and became public and was advised by them to file a case.
Earlier, Delhi CM and the leader of the AAP, Arvind Kejriwal, had sacked Sandeep Kumar from the cabinet on 31 August, who was Minister for Child Welfare and Social Justice, after receiving an “objectionable CD” featuring him. The CD contained a sex tape and similar images featuring him.
The Woman’s statement was recorded before a magistrate under 164 Section of the CrPC. Sandeep Kumar will be produced in court today, according to the sources.
The complainant also demanded an inquiry into this matter to find out who was responsible for the release of the video and demanded severe action against them.
“If woman’s allegations are correct, this is v serious. Strongest exemplary punishment should be given to Sandeep”, Arvind Kejriwal who is in Rome to attend Mother Teresa’s canonisation, tweeted.
