CS assault case: Delhi court dismisses bail plea of AAP MLAs
Delhi's Tees Hazari Court on Friday dismissed the bail application of the two AAP MLA's accused of assaulting Delhi Chief secretary at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence.
AAP MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal, will stay in the judicial custody as of now.
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 on Wednesday termed the alleged assault on the Chief Secretary was a "highly sensitive" case.
The magistrate had refused the plea of the Delhi Police to quiz them in custody for two days, saying the legislators were ready to cooperate in the investigation and no case property was to be recovered from them, which was the basic purpose of police custody.
The two MLAs were arrested in connection with the alleged assault on the bureaucrat during a meeting at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on the night of February 19.
Amanatullah Khan, who represents the Okhla constituency, and Prakash Jarwal, AAP legislature from Deoli, were taken into custody after Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash has filed a complaint against them on Tuesday.
