Chauhan has been booked for allegedly abetting the suicide of a woman party volunteer who consumed poison earlier this month.
Six others, including Chauhan’s personal assistant and a Delhi Police Assistant Sub-Inspector, were also arrested.
The AAP blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the arrest.
Ramesh Bharadwaj, a close associate of Chauhan, had allegedly molested the woman last December and had been threatening her using Chauhan’s name.
