UP Govt Appeals To Allahabad HC To Increase Sentence Of Afzal Ansari, Next Hearing On August 29
Prayagraj, August 12 (TNA) The state government has filed an appeal in the Allahabad High Court to increase the sentence awarded to former MP Afzal Ansari in a gangster case. While hearing the appeal, Justice Rajbir Singh issued a notice to Afzal Ansari and sought his reply. Now the next hearing on the petition will be on August 29.
Afzal Ansari's membership in the Lok Sabha has been canceled only after he was convicted in a gangster case. The High Court had accepted the bail application of Afzal Ansari in the gangster case on July 24. The court sentenced Ansari for four years in the gangster case.
But after the bail, he was released from Ghazipur District Jail. On April 29, the Ghazipur MP/MLA Special Court sentenced Afzal Ansari to four years imprisonment in a gangster case.
