A Delhi court dismissed the bail plea of AAP leader Dinesh Mohaniya in an alleged molestation case on 29 June. The court has also extended his judicial custody till 11 July.

The Sangam Vihar MLA was picked up by a police team while addressing a press conference at his office in Khanpur in South Delhi.

Mohaniya, who is also the vice-chairman of Delhi Jal Board, was booked on June 23 after locals of Sangam Vihar alleged that the MLA and his supporters roughed them up and misbehaved with women in his office when they went to complain about irregular water supply.

A case was registered under Section 506 (criminal intimidation), Section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and Section 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) of the Indian Penal Code at the Neb Sarai Police Station.
