AAP MLA Manoj Kumar sentenced to three months jail for obstructing election process in 2013

Manoj Kumar has denied the charges and said that the case was politically motivated.

A Delhi Court on Tuesday sentenced Aam Aadmi Party MLA Manoj Kumar to three months in jail for obstructing election process at a polling station in Kalyan Puri area of East Delhi during 2013 assembly polls.

On June 11 the special MP-MLA court had convicted AAP legislator Manoj Kumar for obstructing a public servant in discharge of public functions under Section 186 of IPC and disorderly conduct in or near polling stations under section 131 of Representation of the People Act.

The judge had also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Kumar, who was held guilty of obstructing a public servant in discharge of public functions.

However, the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal granted bail to Kumar after he said he will file an appeal against his conviction and sentence before the higher court.

Manoj Kumar, currently an MLA from East Delhi’s Kondli constituency, had denied the charges and said that the case was politically motivated.

The case was lodged on a complaint regarding hindrance in the election process being created by over 50 protesters, then led by Kumar, at the main gate of an MCD school, during 2013 Delhi assembly elections, which caused problems for the voters.

In 2016, Delhi Commission of Women had summoned AAP MLA Manoj Kumar in a case of domestic violence against him. DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal had asked the Kondli MLA to appear before the commission after his wife has lodged a complaint of domestic violence against him following which a summon was issued against him.
