New Delhi, Oct 19: A Delhi court on Friday dismissed the bail application of former BSP MP’s son Ashish Pandey, arrested for brandishing a gun outside a five star hotel here and sent him to judicial custodytill Monday.
Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Anand also rejected Delhi Police’s plea seeking Pandey’s custody for two more days after he was produced in the court on Friday following his one day custodial interrogation.
Dismissing the bail plea, the court said the “arrogance” and “high-headedness” of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader’s son can be clearly made out from the contents of the first information report.
Pandey was seen brandishing a gun outside the Hyatt Regency hotel in the national capital on October 14. He was formally arrested by the Delhi Police following his surrender before the court on Thursday. Delhi Police told the court that it wanted further custody of Pandey to determine if there were any financial transactions that took place between him and the three women accompanying him on the night of the incident.
