New Delhi: It's no relief for AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan, who was arrested for allegedly threatening a woman.
Delhi's Saket court on Tuesday dismissed the bail plea of AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan.
Now, the AAP MLA has been sent to 14 day judicial custody.
AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan was on Sunday arrested after a woman alleged that he tried to mow her down after she visited his residence to raise the issue of power cuts.
Khan was first detained for questioning and then arrested, a day after he alleged in a press conference that the woman was "pressurised" by police into giving a false statement against him.
"On July 22, the woman had recorded her statement before the magistrate under Section 164 of CrPC. She had alleged while she was returning from the legislator's residence, a vehicle tried mowing her down and Amanatullah was sitting in it," said Joint Commission of Police, Southeast Range, R P Upadhyay.
