He has been arrested under sections 186 and 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) of the IPC in connection with the incident. The other two people detained have been identified as Minhaz and Shabir.
Khan’s daughter Ariba Khan is contesting for the upcoming MCD elections on a Congress ticket and the incident occurred when a gathering of 20 to 30 people was being addressed in front of Tayyab Masjid in the area.
