SP Leader Azam Khan Gets Regular Bail In 2019 Hate Speech Case

Bareilly (UP): A special court for MPs/MLAs today granted regular bail to senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan, who challenged his conviction in the 2019 hate speech case in the Session court.


Khan was disqualified from the Uttar Pradesh Assembly after being convicted and sentenced.

Khan’s lawyer Zubair Ahmed said that on October 27, special court judge Alok Dubey awarded the leader three years in jail for hate speech during the 2019 Lok Sabha election campaign.

At that time, the lawyer said he was granted interim bail and an application was made to the court for proper bail.
