AAP leader Ashutosh appears before NCW

By Ians

New Delhi, Sep 8 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Ashutosh on Thursday appeared before the National Commission for Women (NCW) in compliance with the women panel's summon dated September 5.


"I appeared before them (NCW) because I have faith in the Constitution of this country and the institutions established by it," Ashutosh told reporters after coming out of the NCW office.

"I told them that your letter is violation of my fundamental right. The Constitution gives me freedom of expression," he said.

The NCW had summoned Ashutosh for writing an article in defence of sacked Delhi Minister Sandeep Kumar, which the women's panel found "insulting and demeaning" towards women.

Sandeep Kumar was suspended after a sex tape featuring him surfaced last month.
