Delhi Police has booked Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Narayan Dutt Sharma in a case of threatening and abusing a woman officer in south-east Delhi's Badarpur area. Sharma had allegedly called the lady officer and used abusive language and threatened her over the phone on March 17.
She is a project officer in an ICDS project under the Department of Women and Child Development, said the police on Tuesday (March 27). On the woman's complaint, the Delhi Police filed a case against the MLA under sections 506 and 509. They have also started investigating the matter.
Earlier in October 2017, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) had lodged an FIR against Sharma for allegedly assaulting officials of its Building Department. It had also accused him of interfering and creating a ruckus during a demolition drive at Hari Nagar.

Building Department officials say that the MLA confronted the staff while it was razing an unauthorised building.
In a similar incident recently, a BJP MLA from Gorakhpur, Radha Mohan Das, had reprimanded a woman IPS officer which left her teary eyed, say reports. Das’ justification for rebuking the lady officer was that she had removed some people, protesting against a liquor shop, whom he had told to stay put till he arrived.

Similar allegations are against another AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan who allegedly threatened a woman officer in the Delhi health department, reported FirstPost. This is not the first time that Khan has such complaints filed against him. In fact the Delhi Police had also arrested him under similar allegations of threatening another woman who went to his residence to complain about frequent power cuts in her locality. However, the court granted him bail with a warning not to indulge in any criminal offence. It does not look like it had any change of heart in the MLA.
