Amanatullah, an AAP politician, had his request for anticipatory release in the Waqf case denied

Amanatullah Khan, the leader of the AAP and MLA from Okhla, requested anticipatory release in a money laundering case involving alleged anomalies in the Waqf Board during his chairmanship, but the Supreme Court denied his request. Khan was mandated by the SC to report to the ED on April 18.

If there is evidence, take him into custody; if not, do not take him into custody. The process outlined in Section 19 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) must be followed. We understand that you won’t detain him till you are satisfied with Section 19, a SC bench informed Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, who was representing the ED.

A person may be arrested by ED under Section 19 if it has evidence in its possession that the individual may have committed a crime that is illegal.

The Delhi High Court’s March 11 ruling included some points about the case’s merits that the bench disagreed with. Khan is charged with obtaining “huge proceeds of crime” by hiring people illegally and buying real estate under the aliases of his assistants.

On March 11, the Delhi High Court denied Khan’s request for bail. The HC pointed out that despite six summonses, Patel neglected to appear before the ED in the money laundering case involving purported anomalies in the Waqf Board under his leadership.
