Ropar, October 20

The local jail authorities have refused custody of jailed BSP MLA Mukhtar Ansari to the Uttar Pradesh Police, saying he had been advised bed rest by doctors. A team of the UP Police was here to take Ansari into custody in connection with a case.

Ansari is facing several criminal cases in Uttar Pradesh and has been lodged in a Punjab jail since last year.

Advised rest by doc

BSP MLA Mukhtar Ansari was suffering from depression, diabetes and backbone pain, and had been advised rest for three months, Civil Surgeon Davinder Kumar said

According to reports, over a dozen fresh cases have been registered against him in UP over the past six months and he was supposed to be produced in a court tomorrow in one such case.

Ansari, who was lodged in the Banda jail, was brought on production warrant by the Mohali police in January last year in connection with a threat call made to a local realtor for demanding Rs 10 crore as 'protection money'. The caller had identified himself as Mukhtar Ansari.

According to the Ropar jail authorities, Ansari had been suffering from several ailments and was examined by doctors on August 13. — TNS
