The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court on Thursday sentenced Mukhtar Ansari to seven years imprisonment in a 2003 case. This case is related to threatening to kill the jailer of Lucknow jail by showing a pistol. Jailor SK Awasthi fought alone in this case against Bahubali Mukhtar Ansari and got punished. There were many witnesses to this fight who later turned hostile. In 2003, some people had come to meet the then MLA Mukhtar Ansari in Lucknow jail. When the then armed jailer SK Awasthi was searched, Mukhtar Ansari, who was in the jail’s Quarantine Jail, opposed it. After this the matter escalated so much that Mukhtar Ansari took out the guest pistol and threatened him. An FIR has been lodged on behalf of Jailor SK Awasthi at Alambagh police station in Lucknow.
