NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sacked his social welfare minister, Sandeep Kumar, after receiving what he termed an “objectionable CD” of him.
Party sources said a CD submitted to Mr Kejriwal purportedly showed the minister in a compromising position with two women. It also had some objectionable photographs.
Delhi cabinet has 6 ministers — each of them holds multiple portfolios. Besides social welfare, Mr Kumar also held the Women and Child Development portfolio.
In October last year, Mr Kejriwal had sacked Asim Ahmed Khan, 38, who was minister for food and environment. He had been caught asking for bribe.
