AAP MLA and vice chairman of Delhi Jal Board, Dinesh Mohaniya, was on Saturday arrested for allegedly slapping a 60-year-old man and misbehaving with a woman, reports said. The slapping incident took place on Friday in Tughlakabad locality when Mohaniya was there for a visit. Locals told police that Mohaniya slapped the man identified as Rakesh after he failed to recognise him. 

Other AAP workers also attacked the old man and misbehaved with him, they said. The AAP MLA is likely to be arrested.
On Thursday, Mohaniya was booked for allegedly misbehaving with a group of women who approached him with a complaint regarding water crisis in their locality.

The Sangam Vihar MLA was booked on charges of causing hurt, criminal intimidation and using word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman, police said.

“An FIR has been registered under Sections 323, 506 and 509 of IPC against Mohaniya at Neb Sarai police station following a complaint by the group of women,” Nupur Prasad, Additional DCP (South), said on Thursday.

The complainants, who are residents of Sangam Vihar, alleged that Mohaniya and his accomplices “manhandled” and “threatened” them when they sought his help in the water crisis faced by them.The AAP MLA, however, denied the charge and said that he was being targeted on the basis of a purported video aired by some news channels. He said that he was not present at the place at the time of the alleged incident.

“I am ready to cooperate with the police investigation but the allegations against me are baseless,” he said.
