Justice Ramesh Sinha of the Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court on Tuesday (March 8) granted bail to Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan in connection with a land grab case. Azam Khan is facing charges of encroachment of land around Rampur’s Mohammad Ali Jauhar University, where he was the chancellor.

The relief for Mr Khan came just two days ahead of the results of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. However, Mr Khan will continue to be lodged in jail as a judgement in two other cases against him is reserved.

Azam  Khan has been lodged in Sitapur jail since February 2020 last year over several cases registered against him.
