New Delhi: AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan, who is facing allegations of sexual harassment, on Monday went to the Jamia Nagar police station to surrender, but the police there refused to arrest him.

"We will not arrest him now. Whatever he is doing is of his own accord. We will go by our investigation," a senior police officer said.


The Okhla MLA had said police are "under pressure" to arrest him and today he said they didn't arrest him due to "public pressure".

However, senior police officials rubbished the charges. Mr Khan had reached the Jamia Nagar police station with scores of his supporters around 1.30 pm today and asked the policemen to arrest him.

"It is the victory of common people. The police didn't arrest me because of public pressure," he said. The AAP MLA had alleged the police want to arrest him in a false case.

"I requested them to not do so since I am personally involved in the ongoing fogging work in my area, but they said they are under pressure. I will be courting arrest at Jamia Nagar police station," he had said on Saturday.

Mr Khan's sister-in-law had last week registered a sexual harassment case against him at the Jamia Nagar police station.

A case under sections 354(A)(sexual harassment), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) and 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) of the Indian Penal Code was registered against Mr Khan and the woman's husband.
