Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan’s problem continues to brew. In the latest is summon issued from the Anti-Corruption Branch to Khan in connection with the alleged recruitment scam. According to daily reports, the MLA, who was former chairman of Delhi Waqf Board, has been asked to be present in the ACB office in Civil Lines on Friday afternoon and join the enquiry.
The summon has come a few days after he was removed from the chairmanship of Waqf Board after a complaint was filed against him in alleged recruitment scam, an allegation the MLA has vehemently denied.
“We received two complaints against Khan, one from BJP leader and RTI activist Vivek Garg and another from Mohammad Mustafa alleging that recruitments were made without following due procedure. Khan will be questioned tomorrow in connection with Garg’s complaint,” said the official as reported by a daily.
Moreover the big shock had come when Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung had dissolved the Waqf Board constituted by the Arvindal Kejriwal Government.
“In view of the deliberate and persistent acts of illegality, violation of rules, allegations of corruption, possibility of malafide etc, the whole matter related to Delhi Waqf Board is referred to the CBI for investigation,” the L-G office had said in a statement.
Following his removal and dissolving of the Board, Khan had said the L-G’s order will be challenged in court.
