Delhi court on 10th May 2020, Sunday sent the Aam Aadmi Party MLA Prakash Jarwal to four days of Police Custody due to his link in the alleged suicide case of a Doctor in South Delhi last month.

Metropolitan Magistrate Neetika Kapoor allowed the plea of the police for the custodial interrogation of Jarwal and co-accused Kapil Nagar. The court observed that it was essential that the accused be taken into custody. 

The investigation is at an initial stage and the recovery of the documents of the extortion is yet to be effected from the accused persons and the rule of the tanker mafia was yet to be ascertained in the case, the judge said.

While filing for the plea, the police said that a ten days custody is required for the accused.

The advocate who appeared on the behalf of the AAP leader opposed the plea and submitted that the politician had been falsely implicated in this particular case and further said that Jarwal is willing to cooperate with the police in the investigation as and when he will be called forth by them.

On 8th May 2020, the court issued a Non-Bailable Warrant (NBW) against Jarwal and Nagar for their connection in the case. Both were arrested on 9th May 2020. The 52- year old doctor, Dr. Rajendra Singh, had allegedly committed suicide in Durga Vihar in South Delhi on 18th April 2020.

The suicide letter that was procured from the incident site had notes which held Jarwal responsible, following which the police registered a case against the legislator on charges of extraction and abetment to suicide.

Jarwal represents the Deoli Assembly Constituency. In the FIR, it has further been alleged that Dr. Singh who was also in the business of water supply with the Delhi Jal Board since the year 2007 was threatened and intimidated for extortion by Jarwal and Nagar.

On 7th May 2020, the Delhi Police also questioned Jarwals father and brothers to verify their connection with the case. Furthermore, a case of extortion and abetment of suicide had been registered against Jarwal, Nagar, and others at the Neb Sarai Police Station based on a complaint filed by Dr.Singhs son.
