New Delhi: Trouble seems to be mounting for sacked Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar with the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police likely to question him on Friday in connection with the alleged sex scandal.
36-year-old Kumar was sacked by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday after receiving an 'objectionable' CD in which he was purportedly shown in a compromising position with a woman.
"Received 'objectionable' CD of minister Sandeep Kr. AAP stands for propriety in public life. That can't be compromised. Removing him from Cabinet wid immediate effect," Kejriwal tweeted.
Sources said the CD purportedly showed Kumar, also Women and Child Development Minister, in a compromising position with a woman. "The CD came to us half-an-hour back. We saw the CD and took the decision to sack him immediately. AAP has zero tolerance for crime and corruption," Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told reporters tonight.
Kumar represents Sultanpur Majra constituency. He is the second AAP minister to be sacked after Asim Ahmed Khan who was Minister for Food and Supplies.
On October 9 last year, Kejriwal had sacked the then Environment and Food Minister Asim Ahmed Khan for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs 6 lakh from a builder and recommended a CBI probe into the case.
In June last year, then Law Minister Jitendra Singh Tomar had resigned after he was arrested on the charge of possessing fake degrees.
