Supreme Court refuses to pass order on a plea seeking the safety of Mukhtar Ansari during the trial in pending cases

-

New Delhi Sept 6(ILNS): Supreme Court refuses to interfere and declines to pass any order on the petition filed by Afshan Ansari, the wife of Mukhtar Ansari, seeking safety for her husband & an MLA from Mau, UP while being taken for trial in pending cases.

The Supreme Court has asked Mukhtar Ansari’s wife to file a petition in the High Court. The top court has also asked the High Court to expeditiously hear the matter.

During the hearing in the court, Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Mukhtar, said that after the order of the Supreme Court, Mukhtar Ansari was transferred from Punjab jail to Uttar Pradesh jail. Mukhtar Ansari’s life is in danger, because even the leaders of the ruling party in UP talk about shooting criminals, Sibal said.

Afshan Ansari had filed a petition in the Supreme Court and called Mukhtar Ansari’s life in danger. The petition claimed that there should be a fair trial in the case and that Mukhtar should not be confronted. It was said in the petition that Mafia Don Brajesh Singh is part of the government and is very influential. He can plot to kill Mukhtar Ansari with the support of the government, the plea alleged.

The petitioner further said that her husband is a politician and he has won by contesting against the ruling party, which leads to a lot of political rivalries. Afshan Ansari also averred in the petition that her husband is a witness in many such cases in which influential people of the ruling party are accused.

Before Mukhtar Ansari reached Banda Jail, the jail was converted into a police cantonment. Describing a threat to his life in UP, Mukhtar Ansari had surrendered in a minor case in Punjab and was imprisoned there since then. The Punjab government had also opposed his transfer to UP./ILNS/SS/SNG
