Lucknow: Under Yogi government’s zero tolerance policy, Mafia Mukhtar Ansari has been sentenced to five and a half years of rigorous imprisonment in the case of threatening a witness in the murder of a coal businessman by Varanasi’s MP/MLA court. Additionally, a fine of Rs 10,000 has been imposed.

It is known that earlier also in the murder of Awadhesh Rai, mafia Mukhtar Ansari had been given the maximum punishment of life imprisonment. He has been sentenced in a total of seven cases so far.

The MP/MLA Court in Varanasi found Mukhtar Ansari guilty in the case of threatening the witness Mahavir Prasad Rungta in the murder of a coal businessman Nand Kishore Rungta. In the hearing held on Friday in MP/MLA Court, all the allegations against Mukhtar Ansari were proven correct. In this case, the court sentenced the imprisonment of five and a half years and imposed a fine of Rs 10,000.

Notably, on January 22, 1997, after the kidnapping, Nand Kishore Rungta, a coal businessman in the Jawahar Nagar area of Bhelupur police station in Varanasi, was murdered. Mukhtar Ansari and his associate Ataur Rahman, also known as Sikandar, were implicated in this murder.

Thereafter, on the evening of November 5, 1997, threat calls were made to Mahavir Prasad Rungta, the brother of Nand Kishore Rungta, on his landline that the family should not cooperate with the police or the CBI in the murder case. Also, a threat was made to blow up the entire family with a bomb. In this regard, a case was registered at the Bhelupur police station on December 1. The police completed the investigation, and on July 3, 1998, charges were sent to court against Mukhtar Ansari.
