New Delhi, July 25 (ANI): Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP) MLA Amanatulla Khan, who was arrested on the charges of threatening a woman, will be today produced before the Saket district court.

Khan was yesterday sent to one-day police custody following complaint from Vimla Ahuja, who charged the former of rape and attempt to murder.

Following the incident, a case was registered under Sections 509 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against Khan in Jamia Nagar Police Station earlier on July 19.

In her complaint, Ahuja stated that the decision to go his house was made after Khan gave a very casual response to her complaint.

She alleged that after not getting appropriate response, a person came out of Khan's house and hurled abusive language against her and also threatened her of rape and murder.

The person said that the words uttered are the words of Amanathulla Khan.

However, Manohar, lawyer of Khan, refuted the claim and said the charges are baseless.

"We completely deny this charge we have neither objective nor motive to kill someone," he told the media here.

Ahuja earlier on Friday filed another complaint stating that Khan and few others allegedly tried to run her over near Ashok Park, New Friends Colony.

Hence, based on her statement another case was filed under the IPC Section 308 in view of the FIR.

On Saturday, she again gave a complaint to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, South-East, after alleging of inaction on part of the police officials.

Based on her complaint, MLA Khan was yesterday briefly interrogated, arrested and produced in the Saket Court complex.(ANI)
