Here the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) was running an anti-encroachment drive. He was detained along with others for obstructing the operation.

Amanatullah tweeted that Delhi Police has arrested me. Can imprison me, not my spirit. SDMC officials said four illegally constructed buildings and other temporary structures were vandalized during the operation.

We targeted four illegally constructed buildings in the area, an official said. Two were completely demolished while the other two were partially demolished and then sealed. The temporary structure was also removed.

Khan alleged that the campaign in Madanpur Khadar was against the poor as he had appealed to his supporters to protest in the area. AAP MLA said that I will not allow the houses of the poor to fall by the bulldozer. We are also against encroachment. Tell us and we’ll remove them. There is no encroachment here.
