Delhi government orders magisterial probe into AAP worker’s suicide
New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) 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 a molestor she had complained against and who is also a party member, was released on bail.
“She had made a police complaint on June 2, about one of her party collegue Ramesh Wadhwa for harassing her. We registered a case against him and arrested him on June 3. He was granted bail on June 4,” a police officer said.
In her police complaint, Soni has alleged Wadhwa for harassing her continuously and asking for sexual favours. She even raised the matter in the party but no action was taken against him.
