We are in touch with the family and they have said that the last rites will be done after morning prayers. A crowd is expected as people will come to pay tribute and the arrangements are made for the same. But, I appeal to the people that the Model Code of Conduct is in effect for general elections and if it is violated by any means or statements made by anyone, action will be taken as per law.”
According to reports, Mukhtar Ansari’s jailed son, Abbas Ansari, has approached the Supreme Court seeking parole to attend his father’s last rites.
