Apex Court ordered Punjab Govt to shift Mafia don Mukhtar Ansari to UP Jail.


The Supreme Court put to rest the tug-of-war between Uttar Pradesh and the Punjab Government by ordering the transfer of Mafia don turned politician Mukhtar Ansari from Punjab to UP Jail.

The Punjab Government has been ordered by the Supreme Court to transfer Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mukhtar Ansari to UP within two weeks to face further trials. Ansari will be relocated from Rupnagar Jail in Punjab to Banda Jail of UP.

The Apex Court gave the order after hearing a plea of UP Government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, requesting Punjab Government to shift Ansari to UP and sought transfer of the criminal proceedings to a Special Court in Prayagraj.
