Supreme Court Orders Shifting Of Mukhtar Ansari To UP Within Two Weeks
Lucknow, March 26 (TNA) In a big blow to Mukhtaar Ansari, the dreaded-don-turned-politician, the Supreme Court (SC) on Friday ordered his transfer to an Uttar Pradesh prison from the Ropar jail in Punjab. The SC decision also comes as a jolt to the Punjab government which was opposing tooth and nail his transfer to UP.
He has now to be transferred to Uttar Pradesh within two weeks. The apex court also said that the MP/MLA court will now decide whether he has to be kept in which prison of Uttar Pradesh. Mukhtaar has been opposing the plea of the UP government on grounds of ill-health and fear for his life in the state.
