In an attempt to smash their local crime network, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday ordered shifting of around 100 ‘bahubalis’ or gangsters to prisons far away from their home districts.

The prominent gangsters among them are Mukhtar Ansari, Munna Bajrangi, Atiq Ahmed, Shekhar Tiwari, Maulana Anwarul Haq, Mukim alias Kala, Udaibhan Singh alias doctor, Titu alias Kiranpal, Rocky alias Kaki and Alam Singh.

“Though the dons are behind bars, their gangs let loose a reign of terror committing murders, kidnapping, dacoity and extortion with ease,” Additional Director General of Police (Prison) GL Meena told.

While aroud 100 jail inmates have been shifted from one jail to another across the state, those admitted to various mental hospitals in Agra, Varanasi and Bareilly are being verified, and if they are mentally fit to serve the jail term, they will be shifted back to jails, he said.
