FIR filed against AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal


An FIR has been filed against AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal by the victim at a police station in Greater Kailash for allegedly beating a woman. Earlier, Dinesh Mohaniya, who is an MLA of AAP has been accused of sexual harassment.

Charges had been put against him under sections 354(assault with intent to outrage her modesty), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 509 (gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) & 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

On May 20, 2014, Jarwal was arrested after he assaulted a junior engineer of Delhi Jal Board (DJB). The complaint was filed against him by DJB at Sangam Vihar police. Moreover, when he was overlooking the drilling of tube well he assaulted the engineer at Sangam Vihar.

The victim said that, “He was asked by one of legislator's associates to stop the work as it was to be inaugurated by Jarwal. The engineer carried on the work as stopping it would have indefinitely delayed the boring of tube well. The police said the engineer had explained the situation to the MLA who later assaulted him.”

Another FIR was filed against him in August 2013 by Ambedkar Nagar police. The complaint was filed in connection with a protest after a rickshaw driver himself on fire after being harassed by two cops in South East Delhi.
