Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Police on Tuesday took custody of jailed gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari at Punjab`s Rupnagar jail to transfer him to Banda prison. The team that was sent to Ropar jail in Punjab comprised young, flamboyant and experienced officers. As per the sources, the police team included a deputy SP rank officer, two inspectors, six sub-inspectors, 20 head constables, 30 constables, one unit of PAC and an ambulance.

The team was equipped with specialised weapons and bulletproof jackets. Mukhtar Ansari will be taken back in a GPS-enabled Vajra Vahan, an anti-riot vehicle. However, it was ensured that the police team shouldn`t have any cop from Purvanchal as the don enjoys dominance in that chain of the state. Also, the mobile phones of most cops were taken before the team`s movement from Banda in Uttar Pradesh.

The UP Police took three different routes to reach Ropar jail. Mukhtar Ansari hails from Ghazipur district and is a history-sheeter from Mehmoodabad police station with 52 cases in his name. Ansari, who has been lodged in the Rupnagar jail since January 2019 in connection with an extortion case, was taken in an ambulance.
