New Delhi, Nov 18 (IANS) A city court here on Friday rejected the bail plea of former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s estranged son-in-law and extended his judicial custody for 14 days in a case of alleged theft and misappropriation of his wife’s property.

Dismissing the bail plea, Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma remanded Syed Mohammad Imran in judicial custody till December 2.

Imran was arrested in Bengaluru last week.
