Superintendent of Police of Rampur, Ajay Pal Sharma, said, “MLA Abdullah Azam was trying to hinder the search operation of the police after which he was taken into custody. Till now, around 2,500 (stolen) books have been recovered.” 

The Rampur police also lodged an FIR against Abdullah Azam for forgery in the date of birth mentioned in his passport.

The recovered books were ancient and valuable .

The SP MLA claimed that the police did not have a search warrant and everything was being done at the behest of the government.
