New Delhi: Hours after suspending him from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday night met party's Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan.

Confirming the development, Khan said Sisodia had come to his residence to meet him but did not reveal the purpose of the deputy chief minister's visit.

Earlier in the day, Khan was suspended by the party's Political Affairs Committee for accusing senior AAP leader Kumar Vishwas of being an "RSS/BJP" agent and plotting a coup against the party. 

"The PAC has decided to suspend Amanatullah Khan from the party," Deputy Chief Minister and Kumar Vishwas' childhood friend Manish Sisodia had told reporters this morning.

The AAP also announced a three-member committee of party leaders Pankaj Gupta, Atishi Marlena and Ashutosh to determine why Khan made the allegation against the poet-politician.

On Tuesday, Kumar Vishwas alleged a conspiracy against him and indicated his possible exit from the party.

He dubbed Khan, who accused him of being a "BJP-RSS agent", as a "mask" behind those ganging up against him.
