A Delhi court on Tuesday sent Sheila Dikshit’s son-in-law to two-day police custody in a case of theft and misappropriating his wife’s property.

The former Delhi CM’s son-in-law, Syed Mohammad Imran was arrested from Bangalore and brought in Delhi on transit remand. He was produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma who remanded him to police custody till November 17.

Delhi Police sought two days custody of Imran saying they have to recover the articles which he had allegedly stolen.

Advocates P Banerjee and Neeraj Kumar, appearing for Imran, opposed the police plea saying the probe agency has violated the provisions of CrPC and he should be released from custody, according to a report in PTI.

The counsel argued that the arrest of accused was not mandatory in this case and the police should have given notice to him to appear before the officer.

Latika, Dikshit’s daughter, had also accused her estranged husband of subjecting her to violence, according to police. Latika and Imran had got married in 1996 but were living separately for the last 10 months.

Latika, in her complaint filed in June,  alleged that Imran’s attitude had changed towards her and had become aggressive and rude towards her after her mother lost in the Delhi Assembly elections.

Latika had alleged that Imran took away papers of a piece of land owned by her in Nainital, despite having been told not to do so in May.

According to police, she also alleged that some of the belongings, kept at her Hailey Road house in central Delhi, had gone missing and whenever she asked, Imran was evasive.
