Fresh trouble for Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan

In a fresh trouble for Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a case against him in Waqf Board recruitment scam, reported PTI.

Khan told OKHLATIMES.COM that the CBI is a parrot and said he was being targeted.

Khan was chief of Delhi Waqf Board. Earlier, Khan had resigned from the Waqf Board and other positions in September after an FIR was filed against him in alleged molestation case. “False allegations are being levelled against me and my family to frame us. I want to be free from all the responsibilities given to me by the government, and therefore, I tender my resignation from all the posts,” the MLA had written in his resignation letter then.

However, the AAP didn’t accept his resignation and he was back as chief of Delhi Waqf Board until Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung dissolved the Board. He had declared his appointment as chairman of the Board as “illegal.”

The MLA has been accused of “illegally appointing” a number of people to different posts in the board, including his friends and relatives, an allegation that Khan has denied.

A few months ago, Khan was arrested after a sexual assault case was filed against him by his sister-in-law. In July he was again arrested for threatening a woman. And recently a case was filed against him and his friends for allegedly beating up an activist in Shaheen Bagh that the MLA has denied.
