Probe Into Female AAP Activist’s Suicide After Alleged Molestation
Delhi govt on Wednesday ordered a magisterial probe into the alleged suicide of a female Aam Aadmi Party worker.
The Delhi government on Wednesday ordered a magisterial probe into the alleged suicide of a female Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has asked North Delhi’s district magistrate to investigate the matter.
“Have ordered magistrate inquiry in AAP activist suicide case in Narela. DM north will do the inquiry,” Sisodia tweeted.
Police said that the female worker, identified as Soni, committed suicide on Tuesday after an alleged molester she had complained against and who is also a party member, was released on bail.
“She had made a police complaint on 2 June, about one of her party colleagues Ramesh Wadhwa for harassing her. We registered a case against him and arrested him on 3 June. He was granted bail on 4 June,” a police officer said.
In her police complaint, Soni had alleged Wadhwa was harassing her continuously and asking for sexual favours. She reportedly even raised the matter in the party but no action was taken against him.
