New Delhi: AAP MLA Dinesh Mohaniya, arrested on charges of molestation and sexual harassment, was on Saturday sent to Tihar Jail till Monday by a Delhi court which rejected his bail plea.

Duty Magistrate Anjani Mahajan dismissed the MLA's bail application which claimed that his arrest earlier in the day was meant only to humiliate him.

 

"After thoughtful consideration, I am rejecting the bail plea. The accused (Mohaniya) is sent to judicial custody till June 27," the magistrate said.

While producing the politician before the court, the police moved an application that the accused be sent to judicial custody as his custodial interrogation was not required.

The MLA was booked on June 23 for allegedly misbehaving with a group of women who had approached him with a complaint regarding water crisis in their locality. An FIR was lodged at South Delhi's Neb Sarai Police Station.

Mohaniya has been arrested under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354 A (sexual harassment), 354 B (assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe) and 354 C (voyeurism) of the IPC.
