During questioning by police, Sandeep had claimed innocence alleging that Praveen had "tried to blackmail" him and "threatened to harm his public image".

Yesterday, police had conducted searches at the residence of the minister and his acquaintances. Sandeep, arrested on charges of rape, was remanded in three-day police custody today by a court.

On Saturday, the woman, who purportedly figured in the "objectionable" CD that led to the sacking of Sandeep by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, filed a rape case against the former minister.

Thereafter, the minister surrendered at the office of DCP (Outer)and was arrested. Sandeep has also been suspended from primary membership of Aam Aadmi Party.
