Allahabad HC Extends Interim Protection Of Mukhtar Ansari’s MLA Son Abbas

Prayagraj, April 28 (TNA) The Allahabad High Court has extended the interim protection given to jailed mafia don-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari's MLA son Abbas Ansari and others. On behalf of the state government the court was apprised that the counter affidavit has been given to the petitioner and that it will be filed soon.

The court has given time to the petitioner to file the rejoinder affidavit. The next hearing of the petition will be on May 12. The petitioner is accused of making provocative statements during the assembly elections. The court has stayed the arrest.

This order was given by a division bench of Justice Sunita Agrawal and Justice Sadhna Rani Thakur on the petition of Abbas Ansari and others. Ansari had given a statement during the assembly elections that after the change of government in UP, the officers will not be allowed to leave for six months and the accounts will be settled with them.

He had claimed that he had already spoken to Akhilesh Yadav. This video of Abbas's statement of not allowing the transfer of administrative officers and taking account of them when the government was formed had become viral. The administration also took action on this video and his election campaigning was banned for 24 hours
