PTI, Mar 5, 2024, 2:09 PM IST

Observing that Mukhtar Ansari is a “dreaded criminal”, the Supreme Court on Tuesday deferred its hearing on a plea by the gangster-politician against an order of the Allahabad High Court sentencing him to five-year jail term in a 24-year-old case.

A bench comprising Justices Bela M Trivedi and Pankaj Mithal adjourned the hearing on Ansari’s plea on Tuesday. “He is a dreaded criminal. There are so many cases,” the bench observed.

Senior advocate Garima Prasad, appearing for the Uttar Pradesh government, said Ansari had spread “a reign of terror” in the state, to which the bench said, “he is behind bars now”.
