Another jolt to AAP, Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal arrested for misbehaving with woman
An FIR has been lodged against Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal at the Greater Kailash Police Station under sections 354, 506, 509 and 34 of IPC for misbehaving with a woman.
New Delhi: In another setback to the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi, its MLA from Deoli was arrested on charges of misbehaving with a woman on Friday.
An FIR has been lodged against MLA Prakash Jarwal at the Greater Kailash Police Station under sections 354, 506, 509 and 34 of IPC for misbehaving with a woman.
The victim says she first approached offices of LG and Delhi Police CP before filing the FIR.
After being booked on charges of misbehaving with a woman, the AAP MLA claimed that that a 'political game' is being played against him in order the defame the party and asserted that he will readily go to prison if the charges against him are proven.
Breaking his silence after being booked, Jarwal was quoted as saying by ANI that the woman who had filed an FIR against him is a member of the Rashtravadi Janata Party.
However, this is not the first time that Jarwal has landed in trouble, as in May 2014, he was arrested for allegedly thrashing a junior engineer of Delhi Jal Board.
This comes in the heels of AAP leader Ashish Khetan being booked for hurting religious sentiments in Punjab and the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's principal secretary Rajendra Kumar on corruption charges.
Earlier AAP MLA Naresh Yadav was named in an FIR related to a recent case of alleged 'desecration' of the Quran.
The AAP has been claiming that the string of attacks against them is the work of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who was troubling them as they fear losing the upcoming Punjab Assembly polls.
