Ten years sentence to Mukhtar Ansari in murder case

New Delhi: A Ghazipur court on Friday sentenced the gangster-politician Mukhtar Ansari to 10 years in prison with hard labor in connection with the 2009 Gangster Act case.

Mukhtar has been sentenced to ten years of rigorous imprisonment and fined Rs 5 lakh

In addition to the imprisonment, the former MLA has been ordered to pay a fine of Rs 5 lakh. This verdict was delivered a day after he was found guilty in the case.

Mukhtar’s close associate and co-accused in this case, Sonu Yadav, has been sentenced to five years in prison and fined Rs 2 lakh. This marks the sixth instance since September 2022 when Mukhtar has faced legal penalties. In 1991, he was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Awadhesh Rai, and he received ten years in prison for two additional cases.

On Thursday, after convicting Mukhtar and Sonu, Additional Session Judge-III (MP-MLA) Arvind Kumar Mishra pronounced their sentences late Friday afternoon. Mukhtar has been sentenced to ten years of rigorous imprisonment and fined Rs 5 lakh, with the possibility of an additional two years of imprisonment if the fine is not paid, as stated in the verdict.
