UP govt begins withdrawing cases against minister Azam Khan
Rampur/Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has started proceedings to withdraw four cases against senior cabinet minister Mohammad Azam Khan.
"The cases against Khan in 2007 appeared to be lodged with bad intentions. We have given applications in concerned courts to withdraw the cases", Principal Secretary, Home, R M Srivastava said.
The police has already filed charge-sheet in these cases.
While a case was lodged against Khan for making objectionable remarks against former Chief Minister Mayawati at a meeting in Tanda in August 2007, another case was lodged against Khan for allegedly attacking the SDM while he was distributing sewing machines.
In June 2007, two cases were lodged against Khan for allegedly constructing a wall (of Mohammad Ali Jauhar University) and obstructing a public road and another for allegedly manhandling a local resident.
