Delhi Police on Wednesday claimed to have arrested a “close aide” of Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan, Kaushar Imam Siddique, from Telangana.

Kaushar Imam Siddique alias Laddan, 47, a resident of Jogabai Extension, was wanted in a case of Arms Act registered against him after a country-made pistol and three live rounds were found on his premises, the police said.
