New Delhi: Personal assistant (PA) of sacked Delhi’s Minister Sandeep Kumar today detained by the Delhi police after the AAP leader alleged that he was “blackmailing” him and “threatening to destroy his public image.”
According to police, Praveen Kumar, who is Kumar’s PA, was detained from Delhi Secretariat on Monday morning.
“As of now, we have detained him for questioning from Delhi Secretariat,” said DCP (Outer) Vikramjeet Singh.
During questioning by police, Sandeep had claimed innocence alleging that Praveen had “tried to blackmail” him and “threatened to harm his public image”.
Sandeep, arrested on charges of rape, was remanded in three-day police custody today by a court.
On Saturday, the woman, who purportedly figured in the “objectionable” CD that led to the sacking of Sandeep by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, filed a rape case against the former minister.
Thereafter, the minister surrendered at the office of DCP (Outer) and was arrested. Sandeep has also been suspended from primary membership of AAP.
It is believed that Praveen has leaked the sex CD tape of Sandeep Kumar.
