Ansari, 63, was brought to Rani Durgavati Medical College in Banda from the district jail on Thursday evening in an “unconscious condition” and died in hospital after suffering cardiac arrest, director Suneel Kaushal said.

Ansari was a five-time MLA from Mau Sadar. He had been behind bars in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab since 2005. More than sixty criminal cases were pending against him.

He was convicted in eight cases by different courts in Uttar Pradesh since September 2022 and was lodged in Banda Jail. His name was included in the list of 66 gangsters issued by the Uttar Pradesh police last year.
