A Delhi Court on Monday sent ousted Delhi Minister Sandeep Kumar on a three-day police remand in connection with the sex CD row.

The Rohini District Court on Sunday had sent Kumar to one-day police custody.

Kumar was arrested on Saturday night, hours after a woman alleged that he had drugged and raped her a year ago.

The arrest came three days after Kumar was sacked from the Delhi Cabinet following the release of a video showing the complainant and him in a "compromising position".

Kumar also lost his primary party membership. To determine the authenticity of the CD, the Delhi Police's Crime Branch has initiated an investigation.

Kumar was sacked by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after a CD that contained an 'objectionable' video landed at AAP's office in Delhi.
