Bail granted to AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan

New Delhi, July 28 (ANI): A Delhi court on Thursday granted bail to Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan, who has been arrested for allegedly threatening a woman. He has been asked to furnish a personal bond of Rs. 50,000.

On Tuesday, his bail plea was rejected by the court and he was sent to 14-day judicial custody.

Khan is also accused of attempting to run over the woman with his car.

Last week, a 35-years-old woman claimed that the she had telephoned Amanatullah on July 10 and later went to his Batla House residence to raise the issue of power cuts with him. But the minister did not meet her and while she was returning, a youth came out of the house, abused her and threatened that she would be killed if she did not stop politicising the matter.

Amanatullah, however, had said he did not even know if the woman came to his residence.

A case has been registered against the legislator under Sections 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code ( IPC) at the Jamia Nagar Police Station in south Delhi. (ANI)
