Mukhtar Ansari Funeral LIVE: The final rites of the gangster-turned-politician, Mukhtar Ansari, will take place on Saturday. Preparations for the funeral are being made in Ghazipur’s Kali Bagh Graveyard. Mukhtar’s postmortem late on Friday confirmed that he died of cardiac arrest, PTI reported citing hospital sources. The autopsy was conducted by a panel of five doctors, it added. Following the examination, Mukhtar’s mortal remains were handed over to his younger son, Umar Ansari, who was also present at the Rani Durgavati Medical College when autopsy was being conducted.

Mukhtar’s corpse was brought to his home in Ghazipur amid a long convoy of vehicles from Banda late on Friday.

Meanwhile, a magisterial inquiry was ordered as opposition parties raised questioned over the gangster-politician’s death amid allegations by his family that he was ‘slow poisoned’ in Banda jail.

Banda Chief Judicial Magistrate Bhagwan Das Gupta appointed Addition CJM Garima Singh as the investigating officer and asked her to submit the probe report within a month.

A political storm has been brewing in Uttar Pradesh over Mukhtar’s death as opposition took shots at the Yogi Adityanath-led government over the deaths of prisoners in the state jail and demanded independent probe into Mukhtar’s demise.
