The streets of Gazipur have fallen eerily silent following the demise of the notorious mafia kingpin Mukhtar Ansari from Purvanchal. Stringent security arrangements have been made throughout the district. Amid tight security from Banda, the body is being transported to Gazipur. It is expected to reach Gazipur tonight, hence Mukhtar Ansari's body will be laid to rest at the family cemetery in Kalibag, tomorrow. 

Enhanced security measures have been in place across the entire district since Ansari's demise. Para-military forces have been deployed in Mohammadabad, with the District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police also conducting inspections.
