BENGALURU: Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's son-in-law was arrested by the Delhi police in Bengaluru for allegedly subjecting his wife to domestic violence. According to the police, Syed Imran was arrested from a hotel on M.G. Road on Friday.
The police officials said that Imran and Latika, who have approached a court in Delhi seeking divorce, were separated 10 months ago and since then, Imran had been living in Bengaluru. He was working at a software firm in the city.
The couple had frequent tiffs over domestic issues, including the custody of their child and Imran used to make abusive calls to Latika regarding the same, the police said.
“Although Imran had moved to Bengaluru and was living at an apartment in Domlur after the couple separated, he used to regularly call Latika and the couple fought over various issues. When the phone calls became frequent, Latika filed a dowry harassment case at Barakhamba police station in Delhi,” the police said.
The city police said that based on the call detail records of Imran, the Delhi police traced Imran and arrested him from a hotel on M.G Road. “Following a court’s permission, Imran was taken to Delhi,” the police maintained.
