A Tory MP has been charged with a sexual assault on a teenager it can finally be revealed.
Rising star Imran Ahmad Khan, 47 appeared at Westminster Magistrates over an historic “groping” claim.
The charge can now be reported after restrictions were lifted.
He appeared at the court this week where Mr Khan, the MP for Wakefield pleaded “not guilty” to the single count which dates back to January 2008.
He will appear at the Old Bailey next month.
Mr Khan was one of the red wall MPs elected in the 2019 election, where he ousted Labour stalwart Mary Creagh.
Staffordshire Police have been probing the claim for over a year but never made a formal arrest.
Instead he was sent a formal “requisition” demanding he turn up to face the charge last month.
Tom Little QC told the court the alleged sexual assault involved a 15 year-old boy.
