Amanatullah Khan, the AAP MLA from Okhla tkbsen
This is the second time the legislator has faced action by Delhi Police in three months. Earlier, he was arrested on July 24 on a complaint by a Jasola resident who alleged that he tried to mow her down after she visited his residence to raise the issue of power cuts. Khan, also the chairman of the Delhi Waqf board, had alleged in a press conference that the woman was “pressurised” by police into giving a false statement against him. He was released on bail on July 28.
Following the complaint, a FIR was lodged against Khan and the woman’s husband at the Jamia Nagar police station in south Delhi on September 10.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also been named in an FIR registered by the ACB in connection with alleged “administrative and financial irregularities” in the functioning of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW).
Kejriwal blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi after his name was included in a FIR. “Without the Prime Minister’s approval, a Chief Minister’s name doesn’t come in an FIR.”
“My role has not been mentioned even once in the FIR (First Information Report).”
The Aam Aadmi Party has alleged political vendetta in the action against its lawmakers by the Delhi Police, which comes under the Union Home Ministry.
