Uttar Pradesh minister Siddharth Nath Singh on Saturday affirmed that former minister and SP leader Azam Khan’s role in the sale of Waqf board’s  property was being probed systematically.

“Prima facie, senior minister in the previous SP government Azam Khan appears to have committed irregularities in the sale of property belonging to the Waqf Board. It seems he had facilitated sale of Waqf land to different people at throwaway prices,” he told reporters here.

“He could not have done so without getting something in return. The matter is being investigated thoroughly and justice will be done,” he said.
