On 5 August, a Delhi court adjourned the hearing on bail plea of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Sharad Chauhan, who is an accused in the alleged suicide of a woman party worker case, for 8 August.
On 1 August, the court adjourned Chouhan's bail plea and sent him to 14-day judicial custody.
The AAP MLA from Narela, who was arrested on 30 July night, was earlier grilled by police in the case pertaining to alleged suicide of a party worker named Soni.
Soni committed suicide on 19 July, alleging harassment by fellow party worker Ramesh Bhardwaj, who allegedly asked her for sexual favours.
The AAP, which has come under flak over this incident, has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and questioned his sanity while charging him with acting on pure 'vengeance' against the Delhi government.
