Mumbai:Supreme Court has granted interim bail to jailed Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan in a cheating case citing “unusual facts” presented before it.

A bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao invoked its special power under Article 142 of the Constitution to grant relief to Khan in view of the peculiar facts of the case.

The top court said that the interim bail will last till the court takes a decision on the application for regular bail.

A bench of Justices B R Gavai and A S Bopanna said, “It is a fit case to exercise the powers under Article 142.”

Khan is presently lodged in Sitapur jail in connection with a number of cases, including that of land grabbing, against him in Rampur.
