Earlier on Friday, ACB had recovered Rs 12 lakh cash and an unlicensed weapon from Khan's residence after it conducted the raid.

The ACB was probing alleged irregularities in the recruitment in the Delhi Waqf board.

On Tuesday, it issued a notice to Khan for questioning in connection with the two-year-old corruption case. He appeared for questioning on Friday in connection with a 2020 case registered under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

Khan, who is the chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board, had tweeted about the notice, claiming he has been summoned for building a new Waqf board office.
