Following a raid on premises connected to AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan and his aides yesterday, South East District Police lodged three FIRs at Jamia Nagar police station. Two FIRs were filed against his aides Hamid Ali and Kausar Imam Siddique, and a third was filed for obstructing an ACB raid party from carrying out government work.

A weapon was found at one of the locations. It has been learned that he was unable to produce a licence for the recovered arms (Breta Pistol).

The Aam Aadmi party came out in defence of the MLA and said that he was arrested in a "baseless and outright fake" case.

AAP National Spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj stated in a press conference that ACB received nothing at Amnatullah Khan's residence.

The Delhi Police filed three FIRs yesterday. They have nothing to do with Amanatullah Khan.

The AAP MLA was apprehended after the ACB raided four locations associated with Khan and his business partner, where cash and weapons were discovered.

Khan was summoned by the ACB in connection with a case involving financial misappropriation and other irregularities in the operation of the Delhi Waqf Board.

According to officials, a total of Rs 24 lakh in cash and two illegal weapons were recovered.

According to an official statement, Khan illegally recruited 32 people while serving as Chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board, in violation of all norms and government guidelines, and with allegations of corruption and favouritism.
