Uttar Pradesh Quami Ekta Dal MLA Mukhtar Ansari had been taken to the hospital after he suffered a heart attack from Banda jail in critical condition on Tuesday.

BSP MLA from Banda and his wife suffered a heart attack.

Jail Superintendent of Banda, Ram Sewak Chaudhary said that Ansari suffered a heart attack while meeting his wife in the prison and she too developed chest pain.

They were rushed to Banda district hospital in two ambulances.

"We demand a high-level inquiry", charged one of his close relatives, who reportedly lives with Ansari's wife in a rented house near the jail to supply him with home food and support his lifestyle.
