Lockdown may be extended with ‘change in work style’

While the parties were near unanimous about extending the lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the concerns of DBT and emphasised the need to work differently to run the economy

The additional district judge court of Rampur today sent Samajwadi Party (SP) MP Azam Khan, his wife Tazeen Fatima and son Abdullah Azam Khan to jail until 2 March.

Khan and his wife are accused of making a fake birth certificate of their son Abdullah.

Khan had arrived in Rampur ADJ court today to appear with his family. He is still in the court premises with his family.

Khan had been disregarding summons from the court for a long time. Due to non-attendance, the court had issued bailable and non-bailable warrants against Khan, his wife and son.

So far, 88 lawsuits have been filed against SP MP Khan.

Today, Abdullah Azam was tried in two cases. Today the Khan family reached the court to file a bail application. The court decided to send the three to judicial custody, postponing the hearing on the bail application.

Khan can move the high court against this order of Rampur ADJ Court. If the family does not get relief from the high court, they would have to remain in judicial custody till 2 March.

Earlier, the court of Rampur had served a notice to Azam Khan, his wife Tazeen Fatima and son Abdullah Azam to appear in the court. After the notice, several warrants had been issued against Khan due to continuous non-attendance. Despite this, Azam Khan and his family did not appear before the court.

The court had asked Khan to appear for the last time on 24 January. It was a proclamation, yet Khan ignored the order until 26 February when he appeared for bail with his family.

Rampur, other courts hearing 80 cases against Khan

Khan has 80 legal cases against him related to land encroachment and criminal intimidation. He found support from party leader Akhilesh Yadav who claimed the cases were politically motivated even as Khan and his son lost their memberships of the Uttar Pradesh assembly.

Rampur SP Ajay Pal Singh investigating one of the cases of land grab confirmed that claims of the complainants about the looting of household items, jewellery and domestic cattle were true.

There are several cases of land grab registered against the NGO Jauhar trust founded by Khan. In January 2020, the Rampur local administration initiated the return of occupied land to the rightful owners with around 17 bigha of land being handed over to six farmers (1 bigha = 0.40052356 ac).

In January 2019, a case of forgery was lodged against Khan, his wife Tazeen Fatma and son with respect to the birth certificate of his son Abdullah at a local police station in Uttar Pradesh. However, in March 2019, the Allahabad High Court stayed their arrest until the probe was completed by the police.

In January 2020, the court declared the three, Abdullah and his parents, to be absconders for failing to appear in the court during the hearings of the case. Following this, the Enforcement Directorate will attach the properties of Azam from the first week of February onward. On 26 February, he was sent to the jail along with his wife and son for making fake birth certificate of his son.
