Sandeep Kumar, former Delhi minister, has been sent to three-day police remand by Tis Hazari Court on rape charges. Kumar was suspended from the party after Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal removed him from the state Cabinet after a video showing the Sultanpur Majra MLA in a compromising position with two women surfaced.

One of the women, who figured in the ‘objectionable’ video, had accused Kumar of raping her after allegedly offering her a drink spiked with sedatives. Kejriwal had also tweeted that Kumar should be given “exemplary punishment” if charges against him were found to be true.

Police had booked Kumar under section 376 (rape), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison with intent to commit an offence) of IPC, under section 67A of IT Act (punishment for publishing or transmitting of material containing sexually explicit act) and Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act (public servant taking gratification other than legal remuneration for an official act).

In her complaint, the woman alleged that around 11 months ago she was raped by Kumar when she had gone to his office in Outer Delhi’s Sultanpuri seeking help to obtain a ration card. She alleged that Kumar had offered her a spiked drink and when she fell unconscious, she was taken to his house adjacent to the office and raped.

The woman alleged that Kumar had told her that he will get a ration card for her and also ensure jobs for her children.
