Disgraced MP Imran Ahmad Khan is facing new allegations after a man said that he propositioned him when he was 16.
The man said he met Khan, the Tory MP for Wakefield who was found guilty on Monday of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy, at a birthday party in Suffolk in 2015.
He said that Khan had offered to perform a sex act on him and take him to a hotel room to take drugs and hire a prostitute, The Guardian reported. The man, who came forward after Khan’s conviction, said that he felt ‘really uncomfortable’ after the incident. ‘I didn’t know how to take it. I was only 16,’ he said.
His mother and her partner then told Khan to stay away from her son after he told her about the proposition.
The man, who wants to remain anonymous, did not think much about it until he saw a story about Khan’s conviction
The man, who wants to remain anonymous, did not think much about it until he saw a story about Khan’s conviction.
‘The story popped up on the BBC app and I saw a picture of him and thought, “It’s him. And… this guy is an MP”,’ he said.
‘He’s the probably the furthest thing away from the sort of person anyone wants to represent them.’
Lawyers for Khan, 48, advised him not to comment on the latest allegations. But shortly after they were put to him, Khan, pictured above, said he would resign as an MP, triggering a by-election in his Red Wall seat.
He had been resisting calls to stand down even though he was expelled from the Conservatives after he was found guilty. He plans to appeal against his conviction and said resigning would allow him to ‘focus entirely on clearing my name’.
