Laddan was arrested days after raid on his house in the Waqf Board case from Telangana. A resident of Jogabai Extension, 47-year-old Laddan, was wanted in a case of Arms Act registered against him after a country-made pistol and three live rounds were found in his premises, said police.
“We have apprehended Laddan from Telangana in connection with an FIR registered against him under the Arms Act,” a senior police officer had said, reported indiatvnews.com.
Another person arrested in the case Hamid Ali Khan was granted bail earlier.
Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan was also granted bail in case of alleged irregularities in the Waqf Board, with a Delhi court on Wednesday saying there was no loss to the state exchequer.
According to the IE report dated September 29, the court said: “From the said document, it is apparent that tenancies have been created at a higher rent than the reserve price and also the rent is higher than the previous rent being taken from the earlier tenants.”
Also four residents, who were arrested for obstructing ACB team at Khan’s residence, are in jail. The bail hearing of four is tomorrow, said one Okhla AAP leader aware of the development. Those arrested included Shakeel Ahmad (45), Afsar (20), Anwar (31) and Sikander (45), the TOI had reported.
“We have registered a case for obstructing the ACB officials in discharging their duty and four persons have been arrested in this case. Further investigation is in progress,” a senior police officer had said.
