ED Raids AAP’s Delhi MLA Amanatullah Khan In Money-Laundering Probe

Date:

New Delhi, Oct 10: The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday raided the premises of AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan in Delhi as part of a money-laundering investigation against him and some others, official sources said.
The 49-year-old legislator represents the Okhla constituency in the Delhi Assembly.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) searches are being undertaken under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and about three premises are being covered, according to preliminary inputs.

The federal agency has taken cognisance of a Delhi Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) FIR and a Central Bureau of Investigation FIR against the legislator, related to alleged corruption linked to illegal appointments in the Delhi Waqf Board.

Khan was arrested by the Delhi ACB in September 2022.

The ACB case pertained to “financial misappropriation and other irregularities in the functioning of the Delhi Waqf Board”.
The ACB FIR alleged that Khan, while working as chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board, illegally recruited 32 people, violating all norms and government guidelines. It also accused him of corruption and favouritism.
“The then CEO of the Delhi Waqf Board had clearly given statement and issued memorandum against such illegal recruitment. Further, it is alleged that as chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board, Amanatullah Khan rented out a number of properties of the Delhi Waqf Board illegally, with allegations of corruption and favouritism,” the ACB said in a statement issued in September 2022.

It has been further alleged that he misappropriated Delhi Waqf Board funds, comprising grants in aid from the Delhi government, it had said. (Agencies)
