New Delhi: The Delhi Police have registered a fresh case under non-cognisable offences against AAP Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan, already under arrest in another case, on a complaint by some protesters in his constituency.

The case has been registered against Khan under Section 506 (punishment for intimidation) of IPC which is a non-cognisable offence, on the complaint of a group of protesters, a senior police officer said.

The complainant Syed Tanveer Ahmad, a resident of Shaheen Bagh in Okhla, said he, along with others, was protesting against civic woes and alleged underdevelopment of the constituency under the AAP government on 16 July.

He alleged Khan reached the venue on the night of July 16 "with his men and threatened" them to call off the protest.

Tanveer alleged the MLA intimidated him saying he would "cut him into pieces and throw in Yamuna" if he did not comply.

Based on the complaint of Tanveer and other protestors, including Sultan Ahmad and Syed Abdul Ali, a non-cognisable offence case was registered 24 July at Jamia Nagar Police station.

Khan, who is also chairman of Delhi Waqf Board, was arrested on 24 July from his Batla House residence for allegedly threatening a woman who had visited his house to raise the issue of power cuts.

He was remanded to a 14-day judicial custody on Tuesday by a city court.
