Mukhtar Ansari was running legal tactics in UP for 4 decades, for the first time in the Yogi government
Mafia Mukhtar Ansari, who came out of the world of Jarayam and reached the political corridor, used many political parties in his own way. Mukhtar Ansari, who had ensured the victory of a weak candidate on the strength of muscle power, was caught and left by the politicians, but Mukhtar did everything to grab political ground for himself and the clan.
Mukhtar Ansari, who reached the assembly for the first time in the year 1996, used SP in his own way after BSP. Won the assembly elections even after being an independent candidate twice. Due to the distance from SP-BSP, no time was wasted in forming his own party Quami Ekta Dal. Mukhtar became an MLA five times and for two decades the cases against him were not allowed to reach any conclusion due to legal rigging.
At present, Mukhtar's elder son Abbas Ansari is an MLA from the Sadar seat of Mau on the ticket of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, an ally of the SP in the assembly elections. The first murder case against Mukhtar was registered in 1986 when the Congress government was in the state. The then Congress leaders also had a hand on Mukhtar. Governments kept changing in the state, but no one showed the will to take action against Bahubali Mukhtar.
For the first time after four decades, the Yogi government has broken into Mukhtar Ansari's fort of terror. In the year 2017, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had given instructions for action under the campaign against the mafia and criminals. Effective lobbying was also directed in court against big criminals. It was only after this that the prosecution department intensified the prosecution in the cases registered against Mukhtar.
According to ADG Prosecution Ashutosh Pandey, in the case of the murder of Ram Singh Maurya and his gunner in Mau's Dakshintola police station in 2010, the testimony against Mukhtar has been completed and the sentence is to be pronounced soon, while the charges in a fraud case were to be decided.
Meanwhile, Mukhtar Ansari had gone to Ropar jail in Punjab in a fraud case. He was brought back to the jail of UP only due to the efforts of the prosecution. In both these cases also the prosecution has been intensified. The hearing in the Ram Singh Maurya murder case is to be held again on September 28. It is the fourth of this month.
25 cases pending in UP, Delhi, and Punjab
There are 22 cases pending against Mukhtar in UP, two in Delhi, and one in Punjab. The prosecution department has intensified the prosecution in the cases registered against Mukhtar in the last five years. According to the ADG Prosecution, after Mukhtar Ansari came to Banda jail from Punjab jail, charges have also been framed against him in the fraud case going on in the Anti-Corruption Court of Varanasi.
