New Delhi: AAP and BJP are at loggerheads once again!

Soon after the news of AAP woman member's suicide broke out, AAP and BJP leaders got started lashing out at each other.

Why did she commit suicide?

The woman member AAP allegedly committed suicide in Narela area of outer Delhi on Tuesday.

Her family members claimed that she had gone into depression after her alleged molester, who is an AAP member, was released on bail. 

According to police, the woman consumed poisonous substance at her home in Narela in the afternoon and died during treatment at LNJP Hospital.

Woman had filed molestation complaint

The woman had filed a complaint against party colleague Ramesh Wadhwa for allegedly touching her inappropriately.

A case of molestation was also registered in June and the accused was arrested.

Woman went into depression

Family members of the woman said that she went into depression after bail was granted to the accused.

AAP MLA protected molester?

The woman had alleged that  party colleague Ramesh Wadhwa was being protected by the local MLA. 

BJP slams AAP

Delhi BJP alleged that AAP leaders had ignored her "harassment" complaint. "It may be recalled this girl had been raising issue of her harassment for months but AAP leaders ignored. This incident has established anti-woman character of AAP," said Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay in a statement. 

"Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and local MLA Sharad Chauhan are responsible for her death," he alleged. 

AAP refutes allegations 

AAP refuted the allegations and accused BJP of playing politics over her death.

"There is no mention of the MLA's name in any of the complainants. Whosoever is alleged to have harassed the girl has no connection with the party. The BJP should not stoop this low and play politics over the death of a poor girl. We also want action against the culprit," AAP spokesperson Deepak Bajpai said.
