Delhi Saket court will hear the bail plea of Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the court rejected Khan’s bail plea, after he was arrested for allegedly threatening a woman with rape and murder. He was later sent to 14-day judicial custody.

Last week, a 35-year-old woman claimed that she had telephoned Amanatullah on July 10, following which she went to his Batla House residence to raise the issue of power cuts. But the minister did not meet her and while she was returning, a youth came out of the house, abused her and threatened that she would be killed if she did not stop politicising the matter.

Amanatullah, however, had said he did not even know if the woman came to his residence.

A case has been registered against the legislator under Sections 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Jamia Nagar Police Station in south Delhi.
