AAP MLA Amanatullah arrested in Delhi: Unlicensed pistol and 24 lakh cash found in ACB raid; action in waqf board case
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan has been arrested. The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) raided five locations including his house on Friday. 24 lakh cash and two pistols have been recovered from the hideouts of two close associates of Amanatullah.
One of these pistols is foreign and is not licensed. Apart from the MLA's house, the ACB had raided five locations in Jamia, Okhla and Gafoor Nagar in connection with the scam related to the Waqf Board. On the action of ACB, Amanatullah said that the people who investigators say that there is pressure from above, but these people are doing this on the complaint of CEO Waqf Board.
Amanatullah said- I had sent a proposal for only 125 permanent employees, but it was not approved. Because of this, I had to hire contractual employees. The board committee made the recruitment on the basis of merit. Can't say that my relatives were given preference.
24 people were recruited before me. All were recruited on a merit basis only. These people were appointed by the same CEO who has complained. They are asking for 2022 records. I have followed all the norms. 23-24 FIRs are registered against me.
According to media reports, Khan is facing 33 charges including manipulation in the bank account of the Waqf Board, construction of rent on the board's property, purchase of vehicles, corruption, and appointment of his close ones. ACB registered a case in 2020.
Khan has been accused of scams between 2018 and 2020. In August this year, the ACB wrote a letter to the LG that Amanatullah should be removed from the post of Waqf Board chairman because his nature is very aggressive and he is a criminal.
In Punjab, there was a CBI raid on May 7 at the place of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Jaswant Singh Gajjanamajra. This raid was done in the case of 40 crore bank fraud. Gajjanamajra is the AAP MLA from Amargarh Assembly Constituency. This raid was done at 3 locations in Malerkotla of Sangrur. This is the same MLA who had given an affidavit after winning the election that he would take only Re 1 salary.
