New Delhi: Delhi Karkardooma Court on Thursday dismissed bail plea of Aam Aadmi Party MLA Manoj Kumar who was arrested last week on charges of cheating and land-grabbing case.
According to police, Kumar, who was elected from Kondli constituency in east Delhi, was taken into custody in cases of alleged land grabbing, cheating and assault and arrested after questioning.
The police also said that Kumar was taken to the New Ashok Nagar police station for questioning.
Kumar faces seven cases in all and an FIR in the land grab case was filed about a year back and in the assault case in May this year.
The AAP legislator was later presented before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Saurabh Pratap Singh, who sent him in two-day police remand as against police request for seven-day custody.
Reacting on the issue, the AAP termed the arrest "political vendetta" and a "deliberate act" of the Narendra Modi government even as the BJP and Congress took potshots at the party over the issue.
