New Delhi, Sep 21 (IANS) Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator Amanatullah Khan was on Wednesday arrested after a sexual harassment complaint by his brother-in-law’s wife, police said.

“We arrested Khan today (Wednesday). We had called him for questioning after his brother-in-law’s wife filed a complaint,” a senior police officer told IANS.
