Son of Mukhtar Ansari’s request for anticipatory bail denied by the High Court

In a criminal case filed against him during the 2022 assembly elections for alleged violations of the model code of conduct, Umar Ansari, the son of gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari, sought anticipatory bail, but the High Court of Allahabad denied his request on Tuesday.

According to the high court, the offense is proven based on the case’s facts and circumstances.

“Further his act of forum hunting, his criminal history, which would go to show that the applicant is indulged in various types of criminal activities and his non-cooperation with the trial proceedings, this court is of the view that present anticipatory bail application be dismissed,” said Justice Samit Gopal.
