NEW DELHI: AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan, arrested for allegedly threatening a woman after she had visited his residence to raise the issue of power cuts, on Wednesday moved a session court here seeking bail.

The Okhla MLA, who is in judicial custody, moved the bail plea before an additional sessions judge who has fixed the matter for hearing on Thursday.

The MLA had been denied the relief by a magisterial court on Tuesday on the ground that he might influence witnesses and hamper investigation if released.

Khan’s bail application contended that he is innocent and is an MLA who has to serve society/public.
