Family members of the AAP woman activist, who committed suicide over alleged harassment by a party colleague earlier this week, met Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday.

A senior official said the chief minister has assured them of all possible help. Sources said that if the family wants, the government will contemplate bearing educational expenditure of two children of the woman.

The official said that father, brother, two daughters and father-in-law of the woman met the CM at the Delhi Secretariat.

Delhi Police has registered a case of abetment to suicide and handed over the entire matter to a special investigation team.

A bitter war of words had ensued on Wednesday over the suicide of the woman as BJP held AAP responsible for the death. However, the AAP accused the saffron party of playing politics “over dead bodies”.

The 28-year-old woman has committed suicide in Narela area of outer Delhi on July 19, with her family members claiming that she had gone into depression after her alleged molester, a party colleague, was released on bail. She had alleged that the accused was being protected by the local MLA.

The woman consumed poisonous substance at her home in Narela in the afternoon and died during treatment at LNJP Hospital.
