The Delhi Police today arrested Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan for allegedly sexually harassing his sister-in-law.
A case was registered against Amanatullah Khan, the Okhla MLA, at the Jamia Nagar police station last week by his sister-in-law who accused him of sexually harassing her.
The Police registered a case under sections 354(A)(sexual harassment), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) and 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) of the Indian Penal Code against Amanatullah Khan and the woman's husband.
On Monday, Amanatullah Khan, had gone to the Jamia Nagar police station to surrender in this case. However, the police had refused to arrest him at that time.
After Amanatullah Khan’s sister registered cases of sexual harassment against him, the Okhla MLA had resigned from all party posts. However, the AAP had rejected his resignation saying it was an internal matter of his family.
