Jailed gangster Mukhtar Ansari passes away after suffering cardiac arrest

Gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari, who was facing conviction in eight cases, passed away on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest in Banda jail.

As per jail officials, Ansari was admitted to Banda Medical College earlier in the day after he was found lying unconscious in his barrack.

The jail officials immediately spotted him and took him to the district hospital, where he died during treatment.

The Uttar Pradesh police has imposed prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), which bars large gatherings, across the state following Ansari’s death. 

Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police Prashant Kumar said that special deployment of police personnel has been done in Banda, Mau, Ghazipur and Varanasi districts.

Earlier on Tuesday, Mukhtar was found unconscious and was referred to the district hospital. He had complained of pain in the abdomen and constipation. He was discharged after treatment in 15 hours.

Advocate Randheer Singh Suman, lawyer of the Bahujan Samaj Party MLA, had filed an application in a Barabanki court seeking proper medical examination alleging that ‘slow poisoning’ was being administered to Ansari by Banda prison staff where he was presently lodged.

Total 65 cases had been registered against Ansari, out of which, 21 were pending in various courts. He was sentenced by the court in eight cases and has remained behind bars since 2005 in different jails of Punjab and Uttar Pradesh.
