Azam Khan’s son gets no reprieve from Supreme Court

The High Court had declared Abdullah Azam Khan’s election invalid on the ground that he was under age to fight the 2017 Assembly polls.

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay an Allahabad High Court decision to annul the election of Samajwadi Party leader Mohammad Azam Khan’s son to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.
