Amanatullah Khan represents Okhla constituency and is also the Chairman of Delhi Waqf Board.

The agency has taken cognizance of the Delhi Anti-Corruption Bureau FIR and the Central Bureau of Investigation FIR against the lawmaker related to alleged corruption related to illegal appointments in the Delhi Waqf Board.

Khan was arrested in September last year by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) in connection with alleged irregularities in appointments, misappropriation of funds and abuse of office as chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board. He was later granted bail by Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court.

According to the FIR, Khan while acting as chairman of Delhi Waqf Board had illegally recruited 32 people in violation of norms and government guidelines.

The raids came days after the Federal Investigation Agency raided AAP MP Sanjay Singh’s Delhi residence and subsequently arrested the Rajya Sabha member.
