Mr Mohaniya, who is also the vice chairman of Delhi Jal Board, was picked up by a police team while addressing a news conference at his office in Khanpur in South Delhi.

 

Meanwhile, Mohaniya dismissed the charges against him as “baseless”.

 

“I am ready to cooperate with the police investigation but the allegations against me are baseless,” he said.
