AAP MLA Sharad Chauhan sent to 14-day judicial custody

New Delhi, Aug.1 : A Delhi Court on Monday dismissed the bail plea of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sharad Chauhan, who has been arrested in connection with the alleged suicide of a woman party worker, and sent him to 14-day judicial custody.

The AAP MLA from Narela, who was arrested on Saturday night, was earlier grilled by police in the case pertaining to alleged suicide of a party worker named Soni.

Soni committed suicide on July 19, alleging harassment by fellow party worker Ramesh Bhardwaj, who allegedly asked her for sexual favours.

The AAP, which has come under flak over this incident, has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and questioned his sanity while charging him with acting on pure 'vengeance' against the Delhi government.
