The Patiala House Court on Friday dismissed the bail plea of Ashish Pandey, son of former BSP MP Rakesh Pandey, who was accused of brandishing a gun outside Hyatt Regency in New Delhi.
The court while dismissing the bail plea, also extended Pandey’s judicial custody till Monday.
After surrendering at Delhi’s Patiala House court on Thursday, Ashish Pandey was granted one-day police remand.
Before surrendering, Pandey released a video message saying that he only took the gun for his safety. In the message, he said that CCTV footage of the hotel can prove that there was someone in the ladies washroom that night. The man allegedly present in the women’s washroom threatened Pandey after which he brought his gun.
Earlier on Thursday, the Delhi Police said it had recovered the gun and vehicle of Pandey from his family home in Lucknow.
On Wednesday, the Patiala House court had issued a non-bailable warrant against Pandey after a case was registered against him under the Arms Act.
Ashish was seen waving a gun while arguing with a woman and threatening her right outside the Hyatt Regency Delhi on 14 October. He was also seen hurling abuses and threats at the woman and her partner.
