Sacked Delhi Minister Sandeep Kumar was on Sunday sent to one day judicial custody after he surrendered before police on Saturday, following a complaint by a woman, who purportedly figured in an “objectionable” CD with him.
36-year-old Kumar was produced in a court on Sunday.
“Kumar was arrested on rape and other charges as per details that emerged during preliminary investigation,” DCP (Outer Delhi) Vikramjeet Singh told PTI.
The 40-year-old woman’s statement was recorded before a magistrate under Section 164 of CrPC.
After recording statement of the woman and Kumar, he was booked on charges of rape, transmission of material containing sexually explicit act and taking illegal gratification.
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.
