NEW DELHI, Sep 21:   A Delhi Court on Wednesday extended police custody of AAP Delhi MLA Amanatullah Khan for five more days in connection with the Delhi Waqf Board illegal recruitment case.

Delhi Police produced Khan before the court after the end of his four days police custody and moved a fresh remand application of 10 days.

Counsel for Delhi Police submitted that Khan was unwell and two days were spent in his treatment when he complained of chest pain.

He further submitted that Khan was not ‘cooperating’ with investigating agency and claimed that in this matter money had been transferred to Dubai so to unveil the entire conspiracy further interrogation is required.

Counsel for Khan opposed further remand of Khan by submitting that Government Counsel should reveal all details about how the money has been transferred and to whom. He cannot say Dubai without giving details, the counsel added.

Delhi Police arrested Khan on September 16 and after the end of his four day police custody produced him for seeking further remand.  It is alleged that Khan while working as chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board illegally recruited 32 people, including his relatives and acquaintances in violation of norms, citing urgency and vacancies.  (UNI)
