Doctor’s suicide case: AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal and associate sent to 4 days of police custody, connections with water tanker mafia alleged

The deceased doctor, identified as Dr Rajendra Singh had committed suicide on the 18th of April. In his suicide note, he accused Prakash Jarwal and his associate Kapil Nagar of harassment and blamed them for his decision to take the drastic step.

On Sunday, a Delhi Court has reportedly sent Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA, Prakash Jarwal and co-accused Kapil Nagar to 4 days in police custody, in connection to the suicide case of a 52-year-old doctor named Rajinder Singh.

A First Information Report (FIR) was filed with the police by the son of the deceased who claimed that the duo extorted money from his father who was into water tanker business since 2007. Depressed over financial issues, the doctor had taken his own life. It is accused that the AAP MLA has connections with the water tanker mafia operating in the Deoli and Sangram Vihar areas.

Arguments in Court

While the police had sought 10 days remand for the duo, District Magistrate Nitika Kapoor sent them to four days in police custody.

As per a report in Times of India, the public prosecutor had sought remand of the accused by highlighting the preliminary stage of investigation, heinous nature of the crime and recovery of the extortion money. The Delhi police also need to verify the match their voice samples with that of the threat call received by the doctor who committed suicide. Prakash Jarwal has also been accused of having ties with the tanker mafia in Deoli and Sangam.

Mohammed Irshad, the counsel for accused AAP MLA, however, argued that “no recoveries remained to be affected” and as such the point of police custody was meaningless. He, however, stated that his client was willing to co-operate with the law enforcement authorities and also stated that he was being falsely implicated in the case due to his stature as a public figure.

Prakash Jarwal and the Suicide Case

The deceased doctor, identified as Dr. Rajendra Singh, was a resident of the Deoli neighbourhood in South Delhi and had committed suicide on the 18th of April. In his suicide note, he accused Prakash Jarwal and his associate Kapil Nagar of harassment and blamed them for his decision to take the drastic step. Consequently, the Police had registered an abetment of suicide case against the AAP MLA and his associate and others in the matter.

They were arrested on Saturday evening by the Delhi Police after the Saket Court issued a non-bailable warrant against him. According to police officials, a team of about 15 policemen including ACP Sudhanshu Dhama, Vijay Chandel, and Neb Sarai’s SHO Naresh Solanki raided the MLA’s residence in Tigri on Friday afternoon. Govindpuri, Rohini, and other areas of Delhi were also raided. During this time, the assistants and others found at the MLA’s house were also interrogated.
