UP government suspends transport officer in Mukhtar ambulance case

Friday, 25 June 2021 | PNS | Lucknow

Facilitating the registration of an ambulance used by don-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari and his henchmen during his transit from Ropar jail to a Mohali Court House in Punjab in March this year, finally took its toll when then then assistant regional transport officer (ARTO) of Barabanki was suspended by the state government on Thursday. A departmental probe has also been ordered against the official.
The government action came after it surfaced that the vehicle registration was done on the basis of fake documents of the ambulance. Additional District Magistrate (ADM) of Barabanki, Ram Asrey confirmed the development.
Former ARTO, Rajeshwar Yadav was suspended in connection with the fake ambulance papers case. Yadav is currently posted at Regional Transport Office (RTO), in Ballia. A Special Investigation Team (SIT) was set up by the UP Police to probe the case.
On April 2, a case was registered in Barabanki after the documents of the ambulance bearing UP registration number were found to be fake. On March 31, BSP MLA from Mau, Mukhtar Ansari was taken from Ropar jail and produced before a Mohali court in connection with an alleged extortion case in Punjab of 2019. After an initial probe, the name and address given for the registration of the ambulance were found to be false. The Barabanki police so far arrested half a dozen persons including Dr Alka Rai, whose nursing home’s papers were used to get the vehicle registered as an ambulance in the RTO office at Barabanki.
