Azam Khan’s Bail Plea In SC: The Supreme Court has reserved the order on the bail of Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan. Last week, the court had said that as soon as Azam gets bail in a case, a new case is registered. In response to this, the UP government said that Azam Khan is a habitual offender and a land mafia. Azam’s lawyer Kapil Sibal opposed this and said that keeping someone in jail continuously like this is cruelty. The Supreme Court should grant interim bail to his client.

UP government’s argument
Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, appearing for the UP government, opposed Sibal’s arguments saying that more than 60 cases have been filed against Azam by the local people. Many cases have been registered during the previous government. Now the new case that has been registered is that of getting NOC to the school from fake documents. There is also a case of threatening the officer who registered the case. Azam is also facing trial in some such sections, in which punishment can be up to life imprisonment. The Supreme Court should not order his release.

What is the matter?
While in jail, Azam Khan, who was elected MLA from Rampur in UP, is in jail since February 2020. He has about 90 criminal cases against him. Apart from UP Police, these cases have also been registered by central agencies. It was told in his petition that he has got bail in 86 cases. But the High Court has reserved the order on bail in a case since December last year. Despite applying several times, the order has not been given. The Supreme Court had called the judicial process a mockery of the non-compliance of the order on bail for 5 months. Finally, on May 10, the High Court accepted Azam’s application in the last case left for bail as well. This case was about illegal possession of ‘enemy property’.

No relief even after bail
Even before Azam’s release, the warrant for a new case reached Sitapur Jail. This case is related to getting recognition of 3 schools through fake documents. Due to this, it has become necessary for Azam to take bail in this case as well. The Supreme Court had questioned the intention of the UP government after getting information about this in the hearing held on May 11. A bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and BR Gavai of the Supreme Court had said that if there are 1-2 cases registered against someone, then it can be understood. But here 89 cases have been registered one after the other. Due to this the person is in jail for 2 years.
