A Delhi Court on Friday issued a Non-Bailable warrant (NBW) against the AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal and his associate in connection with the suicide of a doctor in South Delhi’s Neb Sarai. This comes a day after the Delhi Police questioned Jarwal”s father and brothers in connection with the case.
The 52-year-old doctor, Rajendra Singh, had allegedly committed suicide on April 18, holding Jarwal responsible in his suicide note following which police had registered a case against the legislator on charges of extortion and abetment to suicide.
However, Jarwal, who represents Deoli assembly constituency, had said he is innocent and ready to face any probe.
