Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Ashutosh said on Thursday that the Delhi Police may arrest two more party MLAs.

“Delhi Police is going to arrest two more AAP MLAs today (Thursday). Sharad Chauhan and Rakhi Bidlan in the line,” Ashutosh tweeted.

Ashutosh also said that AAP legislator from Narela Sharad Chauhan was grilled by police for more than nine hours in the alleged suicide of party worker Soni and was asked to take names of any of the senior leaders or he would suffer.

Ashutosh’s remarks came after the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police on Wednesday questioned Chauhan.

Soni, a party worker committed suicide on July 19, alleging harassment by an AAP party worker Ramesh Wadhwa. In her complaint, she also alleged that Wadhwa asked for sexual favours.

Wadhwa was arrested on Wednesday by the police.

The police had registered a case against Wadhwa on June 2 and arrested him a day after. He, however, got bail the next day and also got a court stay on his arrest.

Meanwhile, Wadhwa’s charge was refuted by the police.

“We had questioned Chauhan on Wednesday, but we have not summoned Rakhi Bidlan for questioning,” joint commissioner of police (Crime Branch) Ravindra Yadav said.

“I don’t know who is floating such baseless rumors,” the officer said, adding, “I am tired replying to this question.”
