AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan granted bail in sexual harassment case

Amanatullah Khan was sent to one-day judicial custody in connection with the sexual harassment case filed by his sister-in-law.

Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan, arrested in sexual harassment case, was on Thursday granted bail by a Delhi court.

Khan was on Wednesday arrested by the Delhi Police, more than ten days after an FIR was filed against him following complaint by his brother-in-law’s wife.

“We arrested Khan today (Wednesday). We had called him for questioning after his brother-in-law’s wife filed a complaint,” a senior police officer told IANS.

After his arrest, Khan, who represents Okhla constituency in south Delhi, took to Twitter and wrote: “Came here at (the) DCP office Sarita Vihar for general discussion. But they arrested me.”

Later, Delhi Police presented him before Metropolitan Magistrate Vijeta Singh Rawat and sought two-day police custody.

However, the court rejected the police plea and remanded Khan to one-day judicial custody.
