Saket Court on Wednesday granted bail to AAP MLA Dinesh Mohaniya who was arrested by Delhi police for allegedly assaulting a woman, according to ANI.

Mohaniya was arrested amidst high drama when he was addressing a press conference, triggering an angry reaction from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of declaring an “emergency” in Delhi.

Mohaniya, who is also the vice-chairman of Delhi Jal Board, was booked on June 23 after local residents 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.

The police also added Sections 354 and 354 (b).

Reacting sharply to the arrest of the party MLA, Kejriwal said in a tweet, “Modi declares emergency in Delhi. Arresting, raiding, terrorizing, filing false cases against all those whom Delhi elected.

In another tweet, the Delhi CM said, “Dinesh mohaniya arrested from his press conference in front of all TV cameras. What msg does Modi want to give to everyone?”
Mohaniya is the eighth AAP MLA to be arrested by Delhi Police since the party came to power for the second time in Delhi February 2015.
