Fresh trouble for Amanatullah Khan, FIR filed against AAP MLA, supporters on assault charges

New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Wednesday lodged a FIR against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan and his supporters for allegedly assaulting a person. 

In the FIR, the complainant accused the AAP MLA and his supporters of attacking him on the intervening night of October 16-17th.

Amanatullah Khan, an AAP's Okhla MLA, has been booked under sections 323, 341 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), as per the report. 

In September this year, Khan was arrested in connection with a sexual harassment case filed against him by his sister-in-law and is currently out on bail. The woman who is Khan's brother-in-law's wife had alleged that the MLA had been harassing her for the last four years.

Khan, who is a member of the Hajj committee, was accused of several irregularities in recruitment in the Waqf Board following which he had to resign from all government posts. He was recently questioned by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) officials in connection with the scam. 

The Waqf Board was dissolved by Lt Governor Najeeb Jung on October 7 and all the appointments made by Khan were also quashed.
