After around 27 months of being incarcerated, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan will be released from jail on Friday, May 20.

He was issued interim bail by the Supreme Court, after which the Rampur Court issued the order for his release.

The release order was sent to Sitapur Jail on Thursday night. Azam Khan will be released as soon as Sitapur Jail opens today.

Azam Khan's son Abdullah Azam, along with Shivpal Yadav and SP MLA from Saharanpur Dehat, Ashu Malik reached Sitapur jail to receive the SP leader.

Abdullah Azam told the reporters outside the prison that he was happy with the SC's order and said that they would take Azam Khan to Rampur.

On Thursday, the top court had granted Azam Khan interim bail in an alleged cheating case, paving the way for his release.
