Another scandal hits AAP: Amanatullah Khan’s sister-in-law files sexual harassment case against him


Another sleaze scandal has rocked Delhi’s ruling AAP, with a case of sexual harassment registered against its MLA Amanatullah Khan on a complaint by his sister-in-law, forcing him to quit as city’s Waqf Board Chairman.

The complainant approached Jamia Nagar police station alleging that Khan had put pressure on her to get into a physical relationship with him, a senior police officer said. She also accused her husband of demanding dowry and putting pressure on her to get “physically intimate” with Khan, he added.
