Speaker allows police to arrest ‘tainted’ Khan

 KL Report


The Jammu and Kashmir Assembly Speaker Monday allowed police to arrest MLA, Rajouri, Shabir Khan on molestation charges.

“Police had come with an arrest warrant against Khan I told them to go according to law,” Speaker Mubarak Gul told reporters on the opening day of the budget session of the assembly in Jammu.

Gul clarified and said, “It is not necessary that I will give permission but it is necessary to seek permission of the Assembly Speaker about the arrest of any member of this House.”

Gul however avoided the question asked about if Khan was gone into hiding.
