Raid, cash and weapons recovered at 5 locations including AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan’s house

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) is conducting raids in the capital amid interrogation of Aam Aadmi Party MLA and Delhi Waqf Board chairman Amanatullah Khan. Raids have been conducted at 5 locations including Amanatullah Khan’s house. According to sources, lakhs of rupees in cash and unlicensed weapons have been recovered from a hideout during the raid.

Amanatullah was called on Friday for investigation in a two-year-old case related to the Delhi Waqf Board. He was summoned for questioning at 12 noon. During this raids were conducted at 5 places. It is being told that a foreign pistol has been found from the house of Amanatullah Khan’s business partner Hamid Ali, which is not licensed. The matter of getting cash of Rs 12 lakh has also come to the fore. Raids have been conducted in Jamia, Okhla and Gafoor Nagar areas.

In the year 2020, against the Okhla MLA, irregularities were taken in the recruitment of people in a temporary manner in the Delhi Waqf Board, for which a case was registered against him. Sharing a copy of the notice on Twitter on Thursday, Khan wrote, “New office of the Waqf Board has been built, we have been called by SB… let’s call again!” Amanatullah Khan tweeted. Also shared pictures of Waqf Board office.

The ACB raid against the AAP MLA comes at a time when Delhi government’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is facing a CBI probe in the alleged liquor scam. The Central Investigation Agency has searched his house and bank locker. AAP government health minister Satyendar Jain has been in jail for more than three months. He has been booked under the Money Laundering Act. At the same time, AAP says that efforts are being made to implicate him in fake cases due to the increasing popularity of Arvind Kejriwal before the Gujarat assembly elections.
