New Delhi: A Delhi court has sent Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan to 14-day judicial custody in connection with a case of alleged irregularities at the Delhi Waqf Board. Special Judge Vikash Dhull sent Khan to judicial custody yesterday. The anti-corruption branch (ACB) of Delhi Police is investigating into the scam involving money transactions in various states and the UAE.

The ACB is also relying on a diary recovered during its raid that allegedly contains cash entries made by Khan. The agency has also claimed that a political party is under its

scanner while it looked into the money transactions. 

A case against Khan was filed in 2016, following a complaint from the sub-divisional magistrate (headquarters), revenue department, alleging that appointments to various 'existing and non-existing posts' in the Waqf Board were 'arbitrary and illegal'.

The ACB registered an FIR in January 2020 under section 7 (public servant taking gratification) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, and IPC section 120-B (criminal conspiracy).
