ED arrests AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan in Waqf Board money laundering case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday arrested Aam Admi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan in connection with a money laundering case linked to the Delhi Waqf Board. The arrest comes hours after Khan appeared before the ED for questioning in connection with the case.

Following the arrest, a video message by Khan, published on his social media, alleged that the agency wanted him to testify against jailed Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and refusing it will lead to his arrest.

ED claimed Khan acquired “huge proceeds of crime” in cash through illegal recruitment of staff in the Delhi Waqf Board and invested those to purchase immovable assets in the name of his associates.

AAP MP Sanjay Singh reached Khan’s residence on Thursday evening to meet his family and extend the party’s support.
