"Acts of Sandeep Kumar shocking and unfortunate. Such people don't deserve to be Minister, yet alone WCD Minister! Good Govt has sacked him," tweeted chief of Delhi Commission for Women Swati Maliwal, after in a major decision, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal sacked his cabinet minister Sandeep Kumar on account of finding an 'objectionable CD'.

In a statement to ANI, Arvind Kejriwal said that Minister of Child Welfare and Social Justice Sandeep Kumar has been removed from the cabinet. Later, he took to Twitter and announced his decision.

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.
