AAP MLA booked after Okhla man alleges assault

Just a day after reports surfaced about Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan surrendering before Jamia Nagar police station in the alleged sexual assault case and cops refusing to arrest him, another story has surfaced in which AP MLA from Tughlakabad Sahi Ram Pahalwan was booked by the Delhi Police on a complaint by a Okhla-based youth who alleged that he was “assaulted by the legislator”.

 “A case under sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint), 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of IPC has been registered at the Okhla police station,” said a senior police officer.

Yogesh told police that a cemented road was being constructed in a lane outside his house in Tekhand. He alleged that the MLA had “threatened” the supervisor who was observing the construction to stop work on the intervening night of September 18 and 19, reported PTI.

Pehalwan did not respond to calls despite repeated attempts, reported IE. Going by the report has come to the knowledge that Yogesh was allegedly beaten up when he had gone to get medicines with a relative. The probe is on.
