New Delhi: Veteran Congress leader and former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit’s son-in-law was on Tuesday sent to police custody for two days in a case of misappropriating his spouse’s property.

Syed Mohammad Imran was brought to the national capital on transit remand after being detained from Bengaluru. Subsequently, he was remanded to police custody till Thursday next by Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma.
