AAP MLA Dinesh Mohaniya was on Saturday arrested on charges of molestation and sexual harassment amidst high drama when he was addressing a press conference. The arrest has triggered an angry reaction from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of declaring an “emergency” in Delhi.

Mohaniya, who is also vice chairman of Delhi Jal Board, was virtually dragged from his seat by a police official when he was talking to reporters at his office in Khanpur in South Delhi, at around 12.10 PM

Kejriwal reacted sharply to the arrest of the party MLA, as was evident from his tweets.
