Delhi BJP President Satish Upadhyay said one more face has been added "to the notorious team of Arvind Kejriwal's women bashers".

"His (Amanatullah ) arrest has happened too late. Infact Delhi Police should arrest him for spreading communal disharmony and for his hate speech during a Urdu Academy function earlier this year," he said.

Upadhyay alleged that Kejriwal's MLAs were "intoxicated with power and going berserk".

"Delhi Police should act tough and arrest him for repeatedly trying to spread communal disharmony in Okhla area.

"Similarly a suo motu case should be registered by Delhi Police in the matter of hate speech delivered by Amanatullah Khan at a Urdu Academy function earlier this year and he should be arrested," he said.

Khan was today taken into custody after a woman alleged that he tried to mow her down after she visited his residence to raise the issue of power cuts, the tenth party legislator to be arrested.
