Allahabad High Court Grants Interim Relief to Azam Khan’s Son Abdullah, Hearing Postponed to May

In a recent judicial development, Abdullah Azam, son of senior Samajwadi Party leader and former Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minister Azam Khan, received interim relief from the Allahabad High Court in a case related to the procurement of a fake passport. The High Court has suspended the ongoing trial in the Rampur Special MP/MLA Court until the next hearing.

The High Court has now called upon the Uttar Pradesh government to respond to Abdullah Azam’s petition, which challenges an order of the Special Court. The next session, presided over by Justice Sanjay Kumar Singh, is scheduled for May.

In the petition, Abdullah Azam’s legal team challenged the March 19 decision of the Special Court, which had dismissed his application seeking permission to submit certified copies of video clips, wedding cards, and other documents as part of his defense. His attorney, Imran Ullah, argued that Abdullah is being unfairly deprived of his right to present evidence in his defense.

The Special Court had begun the trial on January 10 after recording Abdullah’s statement under section 313 of the CrPC. On March 15, Abdullah had applied for the court to summon video clippings, a wedding card of Abdul Mateen, and recordings from Johar Day, which the court subsequently denied.

This denial prompted the defense to allege that they were being prevented from presenting documents crucial to their case. These documents have already been submitted in another case in which Abdullah was convicted, and they are now under review by the High Court. The defense had requested the Special Court to grant time to provide certified copies of the documents, which was not approved.
