Cross FIRs have been registered in connection with a dispute between two women, reportedly AAP workers, with one accusing the other of tormenting her family on the “behest” of a party MLA, who refuted the allegation.
There was a fight between the two women and one of them later tried to commit suicide.
“His name is mentioned in one of the cross FIRs filed on the complaints by two sides at Janakpuri Police Station,” the officer said. Both the women are residents of DESU colony in Janakpuri.
On 15 July, one of them tried to commit suicide and in a ‘suicide note’ held the other responsible for her taking the extreme step.
However, she survived and gave a statement to police on the basis of which a case was registered on 20 July.
The same day, the other woman also lodged a complaint of rape by the husband of the one who had tried to commit suicide, the officer said, adding an FIR was registered on her complaint also.
Rubbishing the charges against him, the AAP MLA in question claimed that he did not know her and it was a fight between two women in which his name was “unnecessarily dragged” into. “I do not know the woman who has levelled allegation against me. But, I know the other woman as a party worker. My name has been unnecessarily dragged into their dispute,” the MLA claimed.
11 AAP MLAs have already been arrested since the party won a historic mandate in Delhi in February last year.
