The court also ordered to release Mukhtar Malik from the custody if he was not required in other cases. Mukhtar has been in jail for some other criminal cases registered against him under the Arms Act.

The district court had passed the order for Mukhtar's detention in the case related to purchase and selling of land by threatening people in and around Bhopal. He was also accused of extorting money from people.
