New Delhi: Terming the whole incidence a ‘family affair’, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, on Sunday, said that the resignation of MLA and Delhi Waqf board chairman Amanatullah Khan would not be accepted by the party.

Khan, who represents the Okhla constituency, resigned on Saturday from all the posts he held in the Delhi government, hours before a sexual harassment case was filed against him by his sister-in-law.

 

The complainant approached Jamia Nagar police station alleging that Khan had put pressure on her to get into a physical relationship with him.

She also accused her husband of demanding dowry and putting pressure on her to get ‘physically intimate’ with Khan, he added.

A case under IPC sections 354A (sexual harassment), 506 (criminal intimidation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) was registered against Khan and the woman’s husband, said the officer.

 

In his resignation letter to Kejriwal, Amanatullah wrote, “I have been working wholeheartedly to serve people of Delhi. But some people are not liking my honesty and dedication. Therefore I would like to get relieved of all responsibilities party has given me, I resign from all posts.”

The complaint against Khan put AAP in fresh trouble, as the party recently expelled former Delhi minister Sandeep Kumar from the party after a CD purportedly showing him in a “compromising” position with a woman went viral. The woman has accused Kumar, who is currently in prison, of rape.
