Former Delhi chief minister, Sheila Dikshit's son-in-law, Syed Muhammed Imran, has been arrested under the Domestic Violence Act, according to news reports.
According to The Hindu, a team of the Delhi police arrested him two days ago from Bengaluru.
Dikshit's daughter, Latika Dikshit Syed had filed a case of cheating and domestic violence against Imran a few months ago with the Barakhamba police.
The couple is also said to have separated 10 months ago.
Senior police officials told Times Now that they have found substantial evidence against Imran in the domestic violence case.
In November 2014, Latika Dikshit was reportedly contemplating contesting the Delhi assembly elections.
Latika is a trained social worker in her 40s. Her brother Sandeep Dikshit was said to be instrumental in convincing Latika to contest elections.
