Sex CD row: Ex-AAP Minister Sandeep Kumar surrenders

New Delhi [India], Sept. 3 (ANI): Suspended Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Sandeep Kumar, who is presently in the middle of a controversy post the sex scandal, 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, Outer Delhi 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)
