The chief minister of Delhi and leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Arvind Kejriwal, fired his minister for child welfare and social justice, Sandeep Kumar, today after receiving an "objectionable CD" featuring him, reports say.
Sources in the party say that the CD captures Kumar in compromising positions with two women. Kejriwal, who has previously sacked party members for misdemeanours, acted no differently this time.

In October last year, Kejriwal sacked Asim Ahmed Khan, the minister for food and environment, after he was caught asking for bribe.
"I will not even spare my son, Manish Sisodia or anyone else if he is corrupt," the chief minister had said at the time.
As NDTV reported, in June 2015, Jitender Tomar resigned as law minister after he was accused of faking his college degree. He was replaced by Kapil Mishra, who, within two months, was replaced by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
Sandeep Kumar made news earlier this year when he claimed he touches his wife's feet every morning before he begins his day.
