Sandeep, who is embroiled in a 'sex tape' scandal, has alleged that his personal secretary Praveen Kumar was "blackmailing" him and "threatening to destroy his public image".

Police suspect that the "objectionable" video, which showed Sandeep in a compromising position with a woman, was leaked by Praveen. Praveen was on Monday detained by police for questioning from the Delhi Secretariat and was let off late last night.

He was called again on Tuesday. While Sandeep has claimed he was innocent and alleged that Praveen had "tried to blackmail" him, police have not been able to find strong clues pointing toward Praveen's role in the matter.

Praveen has not been arrested as there is no incriminating evidence against him, said a senior police officer. Police are also concerned about the video going viral on the social media. "Since the victim has filed a rape case against the accused, police are worried about a possible threat to her," the officer said.

Police may seek help from the Cyber Cell of the Economic Offences Wing to halt the spread of the video. The officer said: "The priority is finding the device which was used for making the video. After the device is seized, it will be sent for forensic examination along with the CD."
