The Uttar Pradesh police had on April 3 filed a forgery 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. 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 mark sheet which supposedly showed his age to be a mere 24 years and five months, at the time of nomination paper’s filing.
The Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan and his family is neck-deep in trouble. Recently, another non-bailable warrant was issued against the MP for an alleged violation of model code of conduct.
He has almost 80 cases pending in his name. It was first land-grabbing, then lion statues, followed by books and valuable manuscripts, then buffaloes and electricity and then something as petty as stealing goats. Adding salt to his injuries, Azam Khan’s bail application in as many as 34 cases has already been rejected which mostly includes land grabbing cases and also the case registered against him for his sexist jibe against BJP leader Jaya Prada.
Interestingly, the Uttar Pradesh Police has also registered an FIR against the wife of senior Samajwadi Party leader and Rampur MP Azam Khan, Tajeen Fatima. Azam Khan’s wife has been accused of electricity theft.
