New Delhi: A female Aam Aadmi Party worker, who committed suicide on Tuesday after her alleged molester, a party member, was released on bail, had made a sensational allegation before ending her own life.
The deceased has been identified as Soni, who resided in outer Delhi's Narela area with her two daughters and other family members.
A senior police officer told news agency IANS, "She had made a police complaint on June 2, about one of her party colleagues Ramesh Wadhwa for harassing her. We registered a case against him and arrested him on June 3." Wadhwa was granted bail on June 04.
In an interview broadcast by news channel Aaj Tak, Soni, before consuming poisonous substance at her home in Narela, had alleged that she had made a complaint regarding this to Delhi Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal. “The CM asked me to compromise,” the channel showed Soni as speaking.
She was basically unhappy over her party for not initiating any action against her alleged molester, the officer told IANS.
In her police complaint, Soni had accused Wadhwa of harassing her continuously and asking for sexual favours. She even raised the matter in the party but no action was taken against him.
Meanwhile, the family members of the woman alleged that Soni went into depression after bail was granted to the accused.
Delhi BJP alleged that AAP leaders had ignored her "harassment" complaint. The AAP has refuted the allegations and accused the BJP of playing politics over her death.
