Further, directed the police to provide full security to Mukhtar Ansari while shifting him from one jail to another and while producing him before any Court from jail and on the way or any other place.

The Court further disallowed the media to interview him and said that Mukhtar Ansari will be accompanied by the police personnel during his ingress and egress from jail.
