The gangster turned politician has numerous cases against him in UP and Punjab, leading to a tug of war between them to get his custody
Adarsh Patel and India Legal Bureau

ON March 26, the Supreme Court directed the Punjab government to hand over custody of gangster turned politician Mukhtar Ansari to the UP police within two weeks. A bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and Justice RS Reddy passed this order while hearing a plea by UP seeking a direction to the Punjab government and Ropar jail authority to immediately hand over custody of Ansari to Banda district jail in UP.

The MLA from Mau Sadar seat was lodged in a jail in UP as an undertrial when the Punjab police obtained a warrant against him on a complaint of extortion and criminal intimidation and brought him to Punjab. He was lodged in Ropar jail when the UP government moved the apex court for his transfer back. The apex court invoked its extraordinary powers under Article 142 to order his transfer, dismissing Punjab’s stiff opposition.

UP’s writ petition was filed under Article 32 of the Constitution, read with Section 406 of the CrPC. Punjab will now transfer the criminal proceedings and trial in the case which was pending before judicial magistrate-I, Mohali, to the court of Special Judge (MP/MLA), Allahabad in UP.
