Court Rejects AAP MLA’s Bail Plea


New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday rejected a bail plea filed by Aam Aadmi Party MLA Manoj Kumar, who has been arrested in a cheating and land-grabbing case.

Manoj Kumar, elected from Kondli constituency in east Delhi 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. AAP leaders reacted sharply to Kumar`s arrest, accusing the Delhi Police of being “selective” in arrests.
