New Delhi: Senior Delhi BJP leader Harsh
Vardhan`s sister was tricked into having several sleeping
pills allegedly by her daughter-in-law and abandoned outside
AIIMS in an unconscious state, police said today.
Reena (28) was arrested recently following investigations
into a missing person report filed by Asha Singhal herself on
August 24, a senior police official said.
Reena is married to Parag Singhal, Asha`s son.
"Reena tricked Asha, the sister of BJP leader and sitting
MLA Harsh Vardhan, to have milk laced with sleeping pills.
After she fell unconscious, she rented a car and took her to
various hospitals before abandoning her on the gate of AIIMS,"
the official said.
A security guard at AIIMS, who saw the woman lying
unconscious near the gate, took her inside and got her
admitted, he said.
According to the official, Reena had allegedly taken
60-year-old Asha to Model Hospital, GTB Hospital and Saibaba
Hospital before allegedly abandoning her outside AIIMS.
Asha`s husband Ravinder Singhal died some years ago.
A case has been registered.
