Earlier on Monday, Kumar's bail plea was dismissed by the sessions court, which said there was no “premeditation” on the part of the AAPMP in registering the FIR, he added. Said the allegations against Kejriwal's associate could not be “erased”. A day later, a Delhi court sent Kumar to three days of police custody, noting his “genuine needs”.

According to the court, the police “cannot be deprived of its right” to recover the mobile phone that Maliwal was carrying with him at the time of the alleged attack.

“The presence of the accused in a room where NVRs (Network Video Recorders) are installed has not been denied by him or his counsel. In the mind of this court, the reason for staying there for a long time is clearly a question. Which is required. An inquiry should be made as to which custodial interrogation is necessary,” Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Goyal said, as quoted by PTI.

However, Kumar's lawyer opposed the Delhi Police's request for his custodial interrogation, claiming that they had “no evidence to nail him” and “no reason to take him into custody.” There is no justification.”

Meanwhile, the court allowed Kumar's medication requests and daily visits to his lawyers, wife and daughter.

Kumar was arrested on May 18 after Maliwal accused him in an FIR of physically assaulting him at Kejriwal's residence on May 13.

Following the complaint, the police registered an FIR against Kumar under sections 354, 506, 509, and 323 of the IPC, which include assault or criminal force on a woman with intent to outrage her modesty and criminal intimidation. As it deals with crimes.

Shortly before his arrest, Kumar also lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police, saying Maliwal had abused him with the intention of assault.
