Kumar represented from Sultan Pur Majra assembly seat of Delhi. He is third minister to be removed from the government and is alleged to be involved in a sex scandal.
According to media reports, a CD submitted to Kejriwal purportedly showed the minister in a compromising position with two women and some objectionable photographs.
In July, Delhi CM had intervened on Twitter to abort a poorly conceived scheme of Kumar to remove beggars from Delhi's roads.
