A female Aam Aadmi Party activist was forced to commit suicide by consuming poison in outer Delhi’s Narela village on Tuesday night after the alleged molester, who is also a party member, was released on bail. Clearly there was no hope left after the molester’s bail after her repeated pleas to the Aam Aadmi Party to take action against him.
According to the sources, the AAP woman activist is identified as Soni, had lodged a molestation complaint against another party member, Ramesh Wadhwa, last month but to her disappointment, he was released on bail.
A senior police officer said, “She had made a police complaint on June 2, about one of her party colleague Ramesh Wadhwa for harassing her. We registered a case against him and arrested him on June 3.”
“He was granted police bail on June 4,” the officer added. The case was registered under Sections 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) and 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), police said.
On Tuesday, she mixed something into her cold drink and tried to commit suicide around 2 p.m. She was rushed to hospital, but died around 7 p.m. She was basically unhappy over her party for not initiating any action against her alleged molester, the officer said.
Police further said that Wadhwa had got stay on his arrest from the court on June 22. In her police complaint, Soni has alleged Wadhwa for harassing her continuously and asking for sexual favors. She even raised the matter in the party but no action was taken against him.
AAP woman activist, Soni had asked CM Kejriwal for help too but Kejriwal asked her to compromise, as Soni said in an interview before her death. Meanwhile, the family members of the woman had alleged that Soni went into depression after bail was granted to the accused. The family of the deceased has also alleged that the accused is being shielded by local MLA Sharad Chauhan.
See this explosive video where she said that Kejriwal asked her to compromise!

Delhi unit BJP chief Satish Upadhyay said, “The real face of AAP has been exposed and the suicide by the AAP woman activist party worker has established the fact that it is an anti-women character party.”
“She raised the issue with the party leaders but they kept on ignoring her complaint,” Upadhyay said, adding, “And it is not the first incident, around six cases has been filed against AAP leaders for misbehaving with the women, who either work with them or go to their office to meet them.”
The Aam Aadmi Party gives a lame explanation and says that BJP is politicising the death of the girl. Oh, what happened to Kejriwal’s fierce Akhlaq campaign where he communalized a death too. Kejriwal clearly has no answers to Soni’s suicide. This unfortunate incident just shows the lack of apathy and respect that AAP has always claimed they have maintained. Such incidents raise a very serious issue, concerning women as already six cases are already filed against AAP party leaders in different instances. This incident has exposed the anti-women character of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party.
Kejriwal ji, come out of your advertisement mode and answer for this.
