ConclusionThe murky case of AAP MLAs

The AAP has had a very trying relationship with the Delhi Police with the former accusing the latter of harassing its MLAs.

But what is surprising though, is that so far 13 AAP MLAs have been booked for wrongdoings but only one was acquitted and the rest have trials pending against them.

Moreover, these AAP MLAs have always got bail in the first/second hearing.
