Trouble mounts for Azam Khan as Rampur Court issues non-bailable warrant against him over violation of MCC

Rampur Police had registered a case against Azam Khan and Akhilesh Yadav during the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, for holding a roadshow in Swar Tanda Assembly for more than the permitted time.

The Rampur court has issued a non-bailable warrant against Samajwadi Party leader and Lok Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) Azam Khan for an alleged violation of model code of conduct. The court issued the warrant after the MP failed to appear before a district court judge November 13 (Wednesday), even after its order.

The next hearing date, in this case, has been set for November 26.

Case registered against Azam Khan during 2019 Lok Sabha polls:

Rampur Police had registered a case against Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan and party chief Akhilesh Yadav during the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, for holding a roadshow in Swar Tanda Assembly on April 4 for more than the permitted time. Police said the case was registered against the duo for violation of the Model Code of Conduct.

Later, the police filed the charge sheet and the matter was heard in a Rampur court which issued a warrant against both leaders. The SP chief was granted bail but Azam Khan did not appear in the court.

The SP leader is already in neck-deep trouble as almost 80 cases are 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.
