Sex video row: Sandeep Kumar arrested on basis of evidence collected, says DCP

Updated: Sep 04, 2016 00:08 IST

New Delhi [India], Sept. 3 (ANI): After suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Sandeep Kumar, who is presently in the middle of a controversy post the sex scandal, surrendered before police, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer Delhi) Vikramjeet Singh said Kumar was approaching their office when they apprehended him and now arresting him on the basis of evidence collected so far.

"He was approaching our office, when we apprehended him and now arresting him," the DCP told ANI.

"We are arresting him on the basis of evidence that we have collected so far, and whatever comes out in investigation, we will proceed accordingly," said the DCP.

The DCP said Kumar was booked under sections 328 (causing hurt by means of poison, etc., with intent to commit an offence) and 376 (punishment for rape) of the Indian penal Code (IPC), section 67A (punishment for publishing or transmitting of material containing sexually explicit act, etc., in electronic form) of the Information Technology (IT) Act and section 7 (public servant taking gratification other than legal remuneration in respect of an official act) of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Earlier, Kumar surrendered before the Deputy Commissioner of Police office in Rohini this evening.

"We have registered a case against Sandeep Kumar under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 376. The probe is underway," DCP Vikramjeet Singh said.

Meanwhile, the woman who lodged the complaint against Kumar has been taken for a medical test at the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital in the national capital.

The AAP suspended Kumar after a raging controversy over an 'objectionable CD' which showed him in a compromising position with two women.

Kumar, who handled the Women and Child Welfare ministry in the Delhi Government, was earlier this week sacked from the Cabinet by AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal.

Kejriwal said that he would prefer to forfeit his party but never tolerate corruption and wrongful activities, as the AAP does not believe in hiding flaws of its members.

Commenting on Kumar's "misdeeds", Kejriwal said that his former Cabinet colleague has betrayed the party and the people of Delhi.

Kumar, however, denied the allegations on Thursday and played the Dalit card while claiming that the video was fabricated. (ANI)
