Another complaint has been lodged against AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan for allegedly threatening a group of protesters while they were staging a demonstration over civic problems in his constituency Okhla.
The MLA is already under arrest for allegedly threatening a woman who had visited his residence to raise the issue of power cuts in her area. According to complainant, Syed Tanveer Ahmad, a resident of Shaheen Bagh in Okhla, the incident took place on July 16, while he and a few others were holding a protest.
Ahmad claimed Khan reached the protest site and “threatened” them. Tanveer claimed Khan threatened to “cut him into pieces and throw them in the Yamuna” if he did not end the protest. Based on the complaint, police registered a fresh case for non-cognisable offences under Section 506 (intimidation) of the IPC against Khan on July 24.
Meanwhile, Khan, who is also chairman of Delhi Waqf Board, was remanded to 14-day judicial custody by a city court Tuesday.
Metropolitan Magistrate Manisha Tripathi, who sent the MLA to judicial custody till August 9, rejected his bail plea on the ground that he may influence witnesses and hamper the probe.
