AAP MLA Mohaniya in trouble again, this time for ‘slapping’ senior citizen
A day after a case was registered against AAP MLA from Sangam Vihar, Dinesh Mohaniya, for allegedly manhandling and abusing a woman, another case was registered against him on Friday, this time for allegedly slapping a senior citizen in Southeast Delhi’s Tughlaqabad Extension area.
According to the police, Mohaniya was on a visit to gali number 18 of Govindpuri, to see the area’s condition when a senior citizen, Rakesh Kumar, approached him and started complaining about the lack of amenities. The complainant alleged that after a brief correspondence, Mohaniya slapped him and left the place.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Mohaniya said, “I am at a complete loss. I have not misbehaved with anyone. I don’t understand why tense allegations are being made. Earlier also, an FIR was lodged against me based on a fake video.”
Following the incident, Kumar approached the police and a case was registered. “Based on Kumar’s complaint, we registered a case of voluntarily causing hurt against Mohaniya. We are investigating the matter. The man alleged that Mohaniya slapped and pushed him to the ground. We are recording statements of the eyewitnesses to ascertain the exact sequence of the incident,” a senior police officer said.
On Wednesday, a case under sections of 323 (voluntary causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code, was registered by the Delhi Police against Mohaniya.
