Yogi Govt Enhances Efforts To Bring Back Notorious Gangster Mukhtar Ansari To UP From Punjab JailUttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath

The Yogi Adityanath government has stepped up efforts to bring back mafia don and BSP MLA Mukhtar Ansari after the Supreme Court issued a notice in this regard.

Three police personnel of the Uttar Pradesh Police from Ghazipur have gone to Ropar in Punjab after the Supreme Court issued notice to the Ropar Jail Superintendent. Ansari is presently lodged in the Ropar jail.

The court had issued the notice on 18 December after an appeal of the Uttar Pradesh government.

Earlier, several production warrants were issued against Ansari but the Punjab Police did not allow him to be shifted to Uttar Pradesh on the grounds of ill health.

The Yogi Adityanath government has taken tough measures against Mukhtar Ansari and people running illegal businesses under his name. Alleged illegal properties worth crores of rupees related to Ansari in Lucknow, Mau and Ghazipur have been demolished by the state agencies.

Earlier on 18 September, Uttar Pradesh Police had issued a non-bailable warrant against Mukhtar Ansari's wife Afsa Ansari and her brothers Sharjeel Raza and Anwar Shahzad for allegedly occupying a sealed property illegally.

On 28 August, an illegal slaughterhouse of a close aide of Mukhtar Ansari was demolished by the Mau district administration.
