The Delhi police on Thursday opposed his bail plea, saying that he made his wife carry out the torture on their maid.
The police said that he incited his wife to beat up the servants in the house and said that though Dhananjay had filed a petition seeking divorce from his wife Jagriti, both were in constant touch with each other via messages and calls.
Dhananjay has filed for divorce from his wife Jagriti Singh
"They were directly in touch through calls and SMSes. Why they have filed a divorce petition. It is very questionable," they said.
Dhanajay filed for bail after he failed to get relief from a magisterial court, concluding that the allegations against him were very serious. The court also said that Dhananjay didn't deserve leniency due to his conduct previously.
Dhananjay and his wife Jagriti Singh were arrested in connection to the death of their maid. The court will give its order on Nov 29.
