NewDelhi, Sept. 3 (ANI): Delhi Commission for Women ( DCW) chief Swati Maliwal on Saturday welcomed the AAP's decision to sack Sandeep Kumar, saying it is extremely shameful that the latter being the Women and Child Development Minister was busy in his own celebrations at a time when several cases of crime against the feminine gender have been reported in the city.

"The situation of Delhi is so bad, the children are being raped and he was indulging in celebrations. He was the Women and Child Development Minister, how shameful it is. These types of people should immediately be sacked," Maliwal told ANI.

The sacked AAP minister had earlier on Thursday rubbished the charges against him and played the Dalit card while claiming that the video was fabricated.

"I come from a poor family. The poor are always trapped. Every time we rise, there are conspiracies to crush us. I am being targeted because I have set up a statue of Babasaheb Ambedkar in my house. I am ready for every 'agni-pariksha'," said the 34-year-old MLA, who was elected from Sultanpur Majra.

To determine the authenticity of the CD, the Delhi Police's Crime Branch has initiated an investigation. (ANI)
