UP police files case of forgery against SP leader Azam Khan and his son, find out why

Senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan and his son Abdulla Azam have landed in trouble after the Uttar Pradesh police has filed a case of forgery against them. As per reports, the police filed a case against the father son duo following the directive by a Rampur court.

The case pertains to Abdulla Azam allegedly submitting a fake affidavit during the 2017 UP Assembly Elections, in order to conceal his true age. The election was won by Abdulla from the Swaar Tanda seat in state’s Rampur.

Soon after the election, former BSP minister Kazim Ali Khan who is also known as Naved Mia, filed a case against Azam Khan and Abdullah, alleging their attempt to submit fake documents to prove that Abdulla was aged above 25 years. 25 is the minimum age required to contest either assembly or Lok Sabha elections. Abdulla’s father Azam Khan was dragged into this matter by the BSP leader by alleging that the latter too was involved in this matter.

The BSP leader to solidify his case, submitted Abdulla’s class 12 marksheet which supposedly showed his age to be a mere 24 years and five months, at the time of nomination paper’s filing.

Incidentally local reports had claimed that the controversy over Abdulla’s nomination papers had erupted even before the elections were conducted. But back then Abdulla had submitted a birth certificate from a Lucknow hospital which showed his age to be more than 25 years. Following this the Election Commission official had dismissed the case against him.

BJP leader Akash Saxena too got into the fray later and filed a similar complaint with the Election Commission in this regard. Here it was alleged that Abdulla had in his possession two different PAN cards, one for his bank accounts and one for his election affidavit.

While the inquiry was underway, reports claim that inquiry revealed that the charges against the father-son duo were found true which resulted in the court directing the police to file a case.

As a result of this matter, Abdulla risks losing his status as a MLA and they both may face action under section 420 and 120-B of the IPC which pertain to cheating and criminal conspiracy respectively.
