Controversial Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Mukhtar Ansari on Thursday accused Union minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Manoj Sinha of conspiring his murder.

Asserting that his life was under danger, Ansari told ANI that Sinha wants to get him killed.

“My life is under threat and with these intentions I am being transferred from Lucknow district jail to the Banda jail. Union minister and BJP MP Manoj Sinha wants to get me killed,” said Ansari.

The Uttar Pradesh government on Thursday issued an order to shift Ansari to the Banda district jail on administrative grounds.

Ansari is an accused in the murder of BJP MLA Krishnanand Rai.

The BSP leader was transferred to Lucknow district jail in June last year from the Agra Central Jail. He has been in jail since 2005.
