A case of sexual assault and criminal threatening has been filed against AAP legislator Prakash Jarwal. A Sangam Vihar resident recorded a police complaint at the Greater Kailash Police station blaming the Deoli voting public MLA for hurting her when she was protesting at the Delhi Jal Board office. Just a month ago, another AAP MLA Dinesh Mohaniya was arrested for striking a senior subject and sent to 14-day legal care by a city court.
Police said they will present the lady’s statement before an officer, after which Jarwal is liable to be arrested. Prakash Jarwal has been reserved under sections 354(Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 506(criminal intimidation), 509(act with intent to outrage the modesty of woman) of the Indian Penal Code. The threatened lady said that –
We didn’t get water for a long time. Previously, I have protested at the DJB office where Jarwal sits. He knows me. He has weakened me before for refusing the water issue, however, this time he attacked and threatened me. I need police to arrest him as early as possible.
The lady said that she experiences diabetes and was unwell for a month and because of that reason, she couldn’t approach the police. On Wednesday, she went by a senior Delhi cop after which a case was registered. “Her announcement before justice will be an acceptable proof. It is between the court and the lady. We will arrest the charged MLA simply after the required procedure is finished,” said a senior officer.
