Former MLA Mukhtar Ansari’s difficulties increased, now murder case will go on in this case too

Mukhtar Ansari News: Giving a big blow to gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari, the police have registered a case of murder against him. This case has been registered in connection with the 2001 ‘Usri Chatti’ gang war incident. Officials said on Sunday (January 22) that a case has been registered against Mukhtar Ansari at the Mohammadabad police station in Ghazipur under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

What is the whole matter? 

In July 2001, the then Mau Sadar MLA Mukhtar Ansari’s convoy was attacked near Usri Chatti on Yusufpur Kasimabad road in Ghazipur. During the encounter, a person named Manoj Rai died on the spot. One of the injured later succumbed to his injuries and nine others were injured. Five-time former MLA Mukhtar Ansari, 59, is currently lodged in Banda Jail in UP. He was brought to Banda Jail from a jail in Punjab on April 7 following a Supreme Court order. 

Allahabad High Court also gave a blow

Earlier, on January 18, the Allahabad High Court had set aside the March 15 order of the Ghazipur MP/MLA court, allowing Ansari to be kept in a high-class jail in Banda. This order was given by Justice DK Singh while accepting the petition filed by the state government. The court, while giving the order, had said that the order of the special court was without jurisdiction and gangster, dreaded criminal Bahubali Ansari was not legally entitled to get a higher grade in jail. 

State government opposes keeping in Superior Jail

In the petition, the validity of the order of the special court MP / MLA court of Ghazipur was challenged, in which permission was given to keep Ansari in Superior Jail. The state government had said that according to the UP Jail Manual 2022, the court only has the right to recommend superior class, but the final authority to accept or reject it rests only with the government. 

The High Court has the right to send its recommendation to the State Government and the District Magistrate of the District Court. While providing this facility under the jail manual, the education of the undertrial prisoner, his conduct, nature of criminal incident and criminal intent will be looked into. 

Mukhtar Ansari has many criminal cases registered

The state government had said in the court that, "Ansari (Mukhtar Ansari) has a long criminal history. He has 58 criminal cases registered against him. He is the leader of the gang and the crime is of serious nature. A dreaded criminal cannot be given a higher grade. The subordinate court exceeded the jurisdiction and directed to give higher grade. The court has no authority to issue such an order."
