The ACB is probing alleged irregularities in the recruitment in the Delhi Waqf board.
On Thursday, it gave Khan notice that he would be interrogated on the two-year-old corruption probe. In connection with a 2020 case filed under the Prevention of Corruption Act, the Okhla MLA was requested to appear in person for questioning on Friday at 12 pm.
Khan, the chairman of the Delhi Waqf Board, had tweeted about the notice, claiming he has been summoned as he built a new Waqf board office.

A senior official said the searches were conducted on Friday at the house of Khan and his other locations. From one of the locations, Rs 12 lakh cash, an unlicensed weapon and some cartridges were seized, the official said.
Earlier, the ACB had written to the Lieutenant Governor’s Secretariat demanding that Khan be removed as the Delhi Waqf Board chairman for allegedly hampering a probe by “bullying” witnesses in a case against him.
