UP News: After Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, it is now decided that BSP MP Afzal Ansari will go from UP. Ghazipur’s MP/MLA court on Saturday sentenced mafia Mukhtar Ansari and his brother Afzal Ansari in the 2007 Gangster Act case. While Mukhtar was imprisoned for 10 years, Afzal was sentenced to four years in jail.
The court also imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh on Mukhtar Ansari and Rs 1 lakh on Afzal Ansari. Mukhtar and Afzal Ansari were charged in a kidnapping and murder case related to the murder of BJP MLA Krishnanand Rai. Afzal Ansari’s Lok Sabha membership is expected to be decided after the sentence. Because the rules of Parliament say that any member who is sentenced to two years or more in jail is automatically disqualified.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi recently lost his MP status as per the same rule after being convicted and sentenced to two years in jail in a 2019 defamation case.
