Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan was on Wednesday arrested in a sexual harassment case filed by his sister-in-law.

On Sunday, Khan had gone to the Jamia Nagar police station to get himself arrested but the police had refused to do so.

“We will not arrest him now. Whatever he is doing is of his own accord. We will go by our investigation,” a senior police officer said.

A case of sexual harassment was registered against Khan last week in south-east Delhi’s Jamia Nagar Police station on a complaint by his sister-in-law.

A case under IPC 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) was registered against Amanatullah and the woman’s husband.
