New Delhi: Sacked Aam Aadmi Party minister Sandeep Kumar was sent to 14 days judicial custody by Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court on Friday.
A court on Thursday had extended the police custody of sacked AAP Minister Sandeep Kumar who was arrested on charges of rape following a complaint by a woman who figured in a video with him in an objectionable position.
During in-camera proceedings, Special Judge Poonam Chaudhary remanded Kumar to one day police custody after he presented before her the expiry of his three-day police custody.
The former Social Welfare and Women and Child Development Minister in the Delhi government was arrested last week after a woman approached Sultanpuri police station in north Delhi with a complaint of sexual harassment against him, following which a case was filed.
He was booked under Sections 376 (punishment for rape) and 328 (causing hurt by means of poison, with intent to commit an offence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
