NEW DELHI: The BJP on Saturday alleged that the arrest of AAP MLA Dinesh Mohaniya for allegedly attacking locals has exposed the "anti-women character" of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders.

"Arrest of Dinesh Mohaniya on allegations of slapping and harrassing women has brought out in the open the anti-women character of the AAP leaders," Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay said here.

"The arrest has also established the fact that there is extreme water scarcity in remote resettlement colonies and villages of south Delhi," he added.

Mohaniya, an AAP MLA from Sangam Vihar in south Delhi, was arrested by Delhi Police when he was about to address a press conference at his residence.

A case was registered against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA for allegedly slapping Tughlakabad resident Rakesh Kumar, 60, on Friday when the latter was complaining about water scarcity. 

On Thursday Mohaniya was also booked for allegedly misbehaving with a group of women on Wednesday after they had gone to the MLA's residence-cum-office to complain about irregular water supply in their area.

Mohaniya is also the vice chairman of Delhi Jal Board.
