Court Rejects Azam Khan’s Plea for Stay on Conviction


RAMPUR — The MP/MLA court in Rampur has rejected Samajwadi Party leader Mohd Azam Khan’s plea for stay on his conviction in a hate speech case, reports IANS.

The refusal of the court to stay his conviction now means that his disqualification from the state assembly will continue.

Azam Khan’s counsels pleaded for stay on the grounds that the reasons behind the conviction were not strong enough.

The prosecution argued in favour of the conviction.
