Facing allegations of sexual harassment, Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan was arrested on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old woman, who claimed to be a relative of Khan, has alleged that she was being pressurised by Mr Khan to get into a physical relationship with him, a senior officer at Delhi’s Jamia Nagar police station had said.
Khan has denied the charges saying that he had “no connection with the woman at all”.
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.
