AAP worker held for party colleague’s suicide

New Delhi, July 27 (IANS) The Delhi Police on Wednesday arrested Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteer Ramesh Wadhwa on charge of harassing his party colleague who committed suicide at her house in outer Delhi, an officer said.

Wadhwa was arrested by the Crime Branch, which took over the case from local police after AAP worker Soni allegedly committed suicide by consuming poisonous substance at her house in outer Delhi’s Narela village on July 19.

Soni, mother of two daughters, left behind a self-shot WhatsApp video in which she claimed “I was denied justice”.

According to police, the woman in her video clip accused Wadhwa, Amit Kumar and Rajni Kanth of torturing her to withdraw a sexual harassment complaint she filed against Wadhwa on June 2.

Wadhwa was arrested on June 3 but granted bail the very next day.

The case was registered under Sections 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code, police said.

In her police complaint, Soni had alleged that Wadhwa harassed her continuously and asked for sexual favours. She even raised the matter within the party but no action was taken against him, she said.
