Mukhtar Ansari introduced again to UP, Atiq Ahmad subsequent: UP minister Anand Swarup Shukla


A day after gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari was introduced again to the state from a jail in Punjab, Uttar Pradesh minister Anand Swarup Shukla on Thursday stated jailed former parliamentarian and strongman Atiq Ahmad is subsequent.

Five-time legislator and one-time MP Ahmad, now over 60, has greater than 90 legal circumstances, together with homicide, abduction, unlawful mining, extortion, intimidation and fraud, in opposition to him. He is lodged in a jail in Gujarat.

He was shifted there from Uttar Pradesh on the path of the Supreme Court in 2019.

“The Uttar Pradesh government succeeded in bringing back Ansari despite several tricks by the Punjab government. Now we will try to bring Atiq Ahmad back from Gujarat,” Shukla instructed reporters right here.

It is the responsibility of the state authorities to deliver again such criminals to UP as they should be punished for his or her crimes, he stated.

“Already a number of Ahmad’s lavish bungalows in Allahabad have been bulldozed,” the Uttar Pradesh Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs stated.

The Uttar Pradesh authorities introduced Ansari again from the Ropad jail in Punjab to Banda jail on Wednesday morning.
