New Delhi: In sordid twist to the Delhi student eve-teasing case, a young biker, who was arrested on Monday on charges of harassing and intimidating a Delhi University student Jasleen Kaur in the Tilak Nagar locality, on Tuesday accused her of being affiliated with the ruling Aam Admi Party (AAP).
Speaking to the news agency ANI, the biker, identified as 'Sunny', alleged that the Delhi University student is an AAP member and wanted to be famous.
Supporting her son's claims, Sunny's mother accused Kaur of misusing her political connections and said that Sunny is innocent.
Sunny's father too claimed that the girl who has accused his son of eve-teasing has political affiliations.
Meanwhile, Sunny was released on bail late last night.
He was booked on charges of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation.
Police yesterday said that Delhi University student Jasleen Kaur was abused at a traffic signal in Tilak Nagar area in Delhi at around 8 pm on Sunday.
"We have registered an FIR against the biker under Sections 354(a), 506 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code. Investigation has begun and teams have been sent to arrest the accused," a police official had said.
"A man made obscene comments at me today (Sunday) at around 8 pm near Aggarwal, Tilak Nagar. He was on a silver Royal Enfield, vehicle number DL 4S CE 3623. When I told him I am clicking his picture and I'm going to file a complaint against him, he responded by posing for a picture and said, "Jo kar sakti hai kar le. Complaint karke dikha, fir dekhiyo kya karta hun main (Do whatever you like. Complain and see what I do then)," Jasleen said in her Facebook post.
She said what disturbed her more than the obscene remarks was that 20 passers-by heard what the accused said and no one intervened. "No one stood up for me," the complainant said.
Reacting to the incident, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the alleged abuse of Delhi University student by a youth on a motorcycle was "unacceptable".
