- Hearing going on in Supreme Court to bring Mukhtar Ansari to Uttar Pradesh
- Punjab government accused of giving protection to Mukhtar, Mukhtar lodged in Ropar jail in Punjab
The Uttar Pradesh and Punjab government is not only outraged over gangster-turned-Bahubali leader Mukhtar Ansari, but the confrontation is going on inside the court as well. The petition sent to Mukhtar to UP was heard in the Supreme Court on Wednesday. During this, Mukhtar’s lawyer Mukul Rohatgi demanded that all the cases registered in UP be transferred outside UP.
Said that he (Mukhtar Ansari) is an MLA since 5 times. UP police is doing fake encounters of people. His accomplice Munna Bajrangi was murdered in jail. Therefore, his life is also in danger. The hearing in the Krishnanand Rai murder case was transferred to Delhi. Therefore, the case of Punjab should also be transferred to Delhi. On this, Justice Bhushan said that we will heed your demand.
Mukhtar’s move to Punjab is like a film conspiracy
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta of the Yogi government kept his watch after Mukhtar’s counsel argued. Said that the whole matter is like a film script plot. Because the Punjab Police got a complaint that Ansari called a businessman for extortion. He was taken directly from Banda jail to Punjab without permission from UP court. Mehta claimed that a case was registered in Punjab and now it has been kept there unconstitutionally.
Why the charge sheet has not been filed till now
Raising the question, the Solicitor General said that the Punjab businessman had been called and asked for extortion, so why did the Punjab Police not file a charge sheet in this case so far? It has been two years since the case was registered in this case. The default bell can be applied after 60 days. But neither the Punjab Police filed the charge sheet nor did Mukhtar apply the default bail. Nothing of the sort was done on both sides.
Mukhtar was in Banda jail in UP in judicial custody. Permission should have been taken from the local MP / MLA court to carry the accused. Despite this, on 22 January 2019, the Punjab Police comes with an order for an investigation and shows the jailer and goes to Punjab with the accused Mukhtar Ansari. Mukhtar Ansari also appeared in some cases through video conferencing as per his convenience, but on the UP warrant, the Punjab Police says that Mukhtar Ansari is ill. They cannot travel.
Appeared in Delhi’s case on the date it was declared ill
Accused Mukhtar Ansari is in Punjab jail and is running his illegal business. The case of which has also been registered in Mau district of UP. The Punjab jail refused to go to UP on these two dates on 29 April 2019 and 22 June 2019, saying that his health is bad and he is not in a position to go. Between those two dates, Mukhtar appeared in the ongoing case in Delhi.
Court will now hear on Thursday
Advocate Dushyant Dave, appearing for Punjab, said whether a state can file a petition in the Supreme Court to give directions to a state? Referring to the Kerala journalist of the Hathras case, Dave said that in such a situation he can also demand that I am a resident of Kerala, my case should be tried in Kerala. The court has deferred hearing of the case till Thursday.
