AAP Lawmaker Sarita Singh Accused Of Taking Money For Providing Job

AAP's Sarita Singh, however, says the man in question "forged" her sign and "duped her off" Rs 7.5 lakh.


New Delhi:  Delhi Police today said it was investigating a complaint against AAP lawmaker from Rohtasnagar Sarita Singh who was accused by a man of taking money in the name of providing government jobs, a charge termed "baseless" by the legislator.

"One Shakeel with two persons came to Welcome police station today with a complaint that MLA Sarita Singh took money from him in the name of getting him employed. The trio have alleged that they paid Rs 9 lakh to the AAP MLA for getting job and the complaint is under investigation," said AK Singla, Deputy Commissioner of Police (north east).

However, police has not registered any case in connection with Mr Shakeel's complaint, he said.

Mr Shakeel, in his complaint, claimed to be an AAP activist. Sarita Singh, however, accused Mr Shakeel of "forging" her signature, using her letter pads and "duping her off" Rs 7.5 lakh.

She also said that Mr Shakeel was "expelled" by the party for these acts.

In her complaint to the police, she said that Mr Shakeel was assigned to instal street lights in Welcome area but later she came to know that he was "taking illegal commission" for getting work done from locals.

"Further after making enquiries from BSES, I came to know that he got sanctioned Rs 7.5 lakh by showing my letter pad and putting my forged signature on stamp paper," she said. Both Mr Shakeel and the lawmaker have also accused one another of issuing death threats.

The complaint has been lodged by the lawmaker at Man Sarovar Park police station for registration of an FIR against Mr Shakeel.

"The complaint by MLA Sarita Singh has been received and we are looking into it," said a senior police officer.
