Delhi’s Saket court on Monday rejected the bail plea of Aam Aadmi Party legislator Dinesh Mohaniya, and extended his judicial custody for another two weeks. Mohaniya was arrested on Saturday for threatening and harassing a group of women who had visited his office to make a complaint about their irregular water supply. Mohaniya is vice-chairman of the Delhi Jal Board. Mohaniya, however, denied the incident took place and told ANI, “There is no videographic or photographic proof to back their allegation.”

Mohaniya’s arrest on Saturday triggered an angry reaction from AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who said the prime minister had “declared an emergency” in the capital by filing false cases against leaders from other parties.

Several AAP leaders were detained on Sunday after they marched to Narendra Modi’s home following a complaint that had been filed against including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. Sisodia said on Twitter that Modi may use the complaint to wrongfully frame him in extortion or molestation cases.
