Rampur, Jun 10 (PTI) A Rampur court on Monday provided respite to senior Samajwadi Party leader Mohd Azam Khan by clearing his name in a case related to loot and indulging in violence by forcing people to vacate their dwellings in Dungarpur area eight years ago.

MP-MLA court judge Vijay Kumar cleared Khan and five other accused in the case related to 2016, said Khan's lawyer Jubair Ahmad.

The court cleared the Samajwadi Party leader of the charges for want of evidence against him in the matter. Khan was charged with hatching a conspiracy in the case.

The judgement has come in four of these cases out of which Khan has been given clean chit in two cases and awarded punishment in two other cases.
