AAP legislator Amanatullah Khan surrenders; in chief secretary assault case
Amid controversy over the alleged assault on the Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash in Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal house, the party’s Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan has surrendered before Delhi Police in Jamia nagar police station.
Khan’s surrender comes a day after MLA Prakash Jarwal’s arrest from his residence at Deoli in the connection.
Both the AAP MLAs were accused of manhandling Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash.
It was on the basis of Prakash’s complaint that the Delhi Police had registered an FIR against Khan and Jarwal.
The alleged assault occurred during a meeting at the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Civil Lines residence.
Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashutosh convened a press conference and termed the action as hounding of the party leaders.
AAP leader Sanjay Singh said that whenever there is a major incident in the country, AAP is targetted. It is a well-planned conspiracy to discredit the party.>
