Why is Mukhtar Ansari closed in Punjab
The CEO of Homeland Group, which works in real estate in Punjab and Delhi-NCR, complained to the Mohali police that on January 9, 2019, they were asked for extortion of 10 crores. The extortionist had called his name some Ansari of UP. The police registered an FIR and made Ansari, who lives at Banda’s address, an accused. Mukhtar Ansari was lodged in Banda’s jail at that time. Punjab police reached Banda with a production warrant within 15 days of the registration of the case and brought Mukhtar. Since then, Mukhtar is lodged in Ropar Jail. When the UP police asks for Mukhtar’s custody, the Punjab government refuses, saying that Mukhtar is forbidden to travel due to health reasons.

Actually on 9 July 2018 Munna Bajrangi was shot and killed in Baghpat Jail. Munna Bajrangi was also an accused in the Krishnanand Rai murder case. At that time Munna Bajrangi was considered to be Mukhtar’s special shooter. However, later their relationship deteriorated. After the murder of Munna Bajrangi, the Ansari family had also threatened Mukhtar’s life and demanded protection. Such things also go on in Lucknow and Ghazipur that it was only after the murder of Munna Bajrangi in jail that a plan was made to shift Mukhtar to Punjab.
