Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday refused to accept the resignation of its legislator Amanatullah Khan, against whom an FIR was registered a day ago following molestation charges levelled by his sister-in-law.
"We refused to accept his (Khan's) resignation. It's a six-year-old family matter and his in-laws are dragging him into it," Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told a press conference here.
"We have found out in our investigation that he is being dragged into it," he added.
Amanatullah Khan, who is an MLA from Okhla and the Waqf Board chief, resigned from all posts on Saturday. In his resignation letter to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Khan said, he was tired of justifying himself of false accusations.
On Saturday, a complaint was registered against Khan at the Jamia Nagar police station in south Delhi.
In July, Khan was arrested for allegedly threatening a woman but was later granted bail.
