Enemy Property Case Against Azam Khan Will Be Heard Again Today

The ongoing hearing against Samajwadi Party National General Secretary Azam Khan in the enemy property case continued on Wednesday. The defense attorneys examined the documents provided by the witness, with the testimony of the Lekhpal (revenue officer) currently in progress. The defense will cross-examine him, and therefore the hearing will be resuming today.

Case Insights

The enemy property case was registered in 2019 at the Azimnagar police station. The complaint was filed by Allama Jameer Naqvi, a resident of Narayan Garden Hussainbadi Thakurganj, Lucknow. Naqvi stated that Imamuddin Qureshi of Lucknow moved to Pakistan during the Partition, and his property was declared ‘enemy property’ by the government.

However, revenue records also showed his property in Rampur, raising questions about how his property was listed there when he was a resident of Lucknow.
