Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator Amanatullah Khan resigned from all positions on 10 September, following a sexual harassment complaint against him. Reportedly, the complaint was filed against Khan by his sister-in-law.

Khan refuted the allegations and in a letter addressed to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal he claimed that some people did not like his honesty and dedication towards his work and that he was being charged under false allegations.

The Okhla MLA asked to be relieved of all responsibilities in the party and the government, where he served as chairman of the Waqf Board and a member of the party's Political Affairs Committee.

Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party has demanded that in the light of the allegations against Khan, AAP should expel the MLA from the Delhi Assembly.
