Notorious Gangster Mukhtar Ansari while petitioning the Supreme Court alleging a plot to kill him in a "state-sponsored encounter" has claimed that he belongs to a family which has produced leaders like former Vice President Hamid Ansari, Hindustan Times has reported.

Ansari in his petition has opposed the Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government's bid to bring him back to the state from a Punjab jail.

In the petition Ansari said that he is "part of a family that has made immense contribution to the Indian freedom movement and has given India many leaders in the form of Shri Muhammad Hamid Ansari who was the vice president of India, Shri Shaukatullah Ansari who served as the governor of Odisha, Justice Asif Ansari who was the judge of the Allahabad high court, and his own father Subhanullah Ansari who was a freedom fighter and social worker".

Ansari has alleged that his personal custody is being sought by the state government with a motive to kill him.

The Yogi Adityanath government has taken tough measures against Mukhtar Ansari and people running illegal businesses under his name. Alleged illegal properties worth crores of rupees related to Ansari in Lucknow, Mau and Ghazipur have been demolished by the state agencies.
