The Supreme Court of India, on Monday, extended anticipatory bail to Umar Ansari, the son of gangster-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari, in connection with a criminal case registered against him during the 2022 assembly elections. Justices Hrishikesh Roy and Prashant Kumar Mishra presiding over the bench granted relief to Umar Ansari, instructing him to participate in the trial proceedings.

The court observed that other accused in the case had already been granted bail and deemed the matter fit for trial. Despite objections from the Uttar Pradesh government, Ansari was granted anticipatory bail. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, representing Ansari, cited the bail granted to other accused in the case as grounds for his client’s plea.

Umar Ansari was accused of delivering a provocative speech against the Mau district administration while the model code of conduct was in effect during the assembly elections. The Allahabad High Court had previously denied anticipatory bail to Ansari in the same case. However, the Supreme Court’s decision overturned this ruling, granting him anticipatory bail amidst ongoing legal proceedings.
