Two more Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lawmakers are in trouble, while Rajesh Rishi, has been accused of extortion and named in a police complaint by an AAP woman worker who has allegedly attempted suicide, Kartar Singh Tanwar, found an income tax team at his doorstep this morning.
Mr Rishi has denied any links with the activist who allegedly attempted suicide on July 15 over a dispute with a colleague. The woman has allegedly tried to kill herself after leaving a note in which she has alleged that she had been harassed by her colleague and the lawmaker. Her husband has now been accused of rape in a complaint by the second woman.
Mr Rishi said: "I do not know the woman who has levelled allegations against me. But, I know the other woman as a party worker. My name has been unnecessarily dragged into their dispute."
Karan Singh Tanwar, the lawmaker from Chhattarpur in South Delhi, faces a case after tax raids at his home.
The raid on Tanwar's residence will add fuel to the already bitter political war between the AAP and the Modi government.
"Are so many consistent attacks on AAP justified? Are all the criminals of the country in the AAP?" AAP leader Sanjay Singh asked. This is a very relevant question by seeing the events unfolding.
Earlier, Two AAP lawmakers were arrested within 12 hours on the weekend - Amanatullah Khan, the party's lawmaker from Okhla, was arrested for allegedly trying to run over a woman protesting outside his home against power cuts and Naresh Yadav, AAP lawmaker from Mehrauli, is accused of desecrating the holy Quran.
