Atiq Ahmad, Former Gangster and Politician, and His Brother Shot Dead in Prayagraj; 3 Arrested as Shooting Is Captured on Camera
Mafia-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf Ahmed were shot dead while being taken for medical in Prayagraj on Saturday (April 15) night.
The shooting that occurred around 10:00 pm was caught on camera as media persons were following the handcuffed duo, who were being taken to the hospital by police for a medical checkup.
A senior police officer said three people have been arrested in connection with the incident, which occurred just two days after Ahmed’s son Asad was gunned down in a police encounter in Jhansi.
At least three people, who posed as media persons, were seen firing from a close range at Ahmed (60) and Ashraf, who fell to the ground. Notably, Atiq Ahmed was accused in the 2005 BSP MLA Raju Pal murder case and also in the Umesh Pal murder case which happened in February this year.
This comes days after Atiq’s son Asad was killed on April 13 in an encounter in Jhansi. He was killed along with Ghulam, both of whom were wanted in the Umesh Pal murder case of Prayagraj.
