AAP minister Sandeep Kumar’s private secretary held for ‘circulating’ sex clip : On Monday, the Private Secretary of former Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar was arrested on the suspicion that he circulated a sex clip involving the politician.
DCP(Outer) – Vikramjit Singh said that Praveen Kumar was taken into custody from the Delhi Secretariat. He will be questioned in the case.
On Saturday night, MLA of AAP Sandeep kumar was arrested for raping a woman with whom he was seen in the purported sex tape, leading to his expulsion from the AAP government in Delhi. On Monday, he was remanded to three-day police custody.
Sandeep kumar, who was the only Dalit face in the Arvind Kejriwal government, was seen in the clip with two women.
His primary membership of the AAP was suspended over the sex scandal that has divided party leaders. The AAP party has yet to take a decision on removing him from the party.
The wife of Sandeep has said that the CD scandal is a conspiracy against the politician. Sandeep too has said that he has been targeted because he is a Dalit.
A Delhi police officer said that the former minister told interrogators that he suspected the role of Praveen in leaking the objectionable CD. The officer said that it appeared that Sandeep shot the video and shared it with his private secretary Praveen, who may have leaked it.
The officer said that we will question Praveen to establish his role in the entire controversy. If he found guilty, he may be booked under relevant sections.
The former minister will be produced in Rohini Court later in the afternoon. Delhi Police will demand his custody for further questioning.
