Delhi court dismisses bail plea of AAP MLAs in chief secretary assault case

Bail pleas of two AAP MLAs, Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal, were rejected by metropolitan magistrate Shefali Barnala Tondon in the assault case of Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday dismissed the bail pleas of two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs, Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal, arrested for allegedly assaulting Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash.

Metropolitan magistrate Shefali Barnala Tondon, however, refused to grant the police their custody saying there was no new ground for custodial interrogation. The court had yesterday sent the MLAs to 14-day judicial custody.

The two MLAs were arrested in connection with the alleged assault on Delhi’s top bureaucrat during a meeting at chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the night of 19 February. While Jarwal, an MLA from Deoli, was arrested on Tuesday night, Khan was taken into custody on Wednesday afternoon.
