Prayagraj police recover illegal pistol, ammunition after questioning Atiq’s son
Mafioso-turned-politician Atiq Ahmad’s son Ali Ahmad is accused of assaulting property dealer Zeeshan aka Janu in December 2021, Prayagraj police said
After questioning mafioso-turned-politician Atiq Ahmad’s second son Ali Ahmad during a day-long police remand, the Kareli police have recovered an illegal semi-automatic pistol used by Ali for assaulting property dealer Zeeshan aka Janu in December 2021.
SHO of Kareli police station Arvind Gautam said the illegal firearm and two live ammunitions have been recovered from a deserted spot near Bakshi Modha Bridge on confession of Ali.
Officials said Ali was questioned whether he had forced Zeeshan to talk to his father (Atiq Ahmad) but he did not answer this query.
Although there are no records of any suspicious mobile number in Ali’s call details it is possible that he was in contact with his father lodged at Ahmedabad Jail, officials said while adding that Ali was also asked about his enmity with Zeeshan and his accomplices who are on the run.
Ali also informed during questioning that he was living in Kolkata while on the run.
It is worth mentioning that Ali, who was on the run for seven months and had a cash reward of ₹50,000 on his head, had surrendered on July 30 before judicial magistrate Fourth, Prayagraj, Shalini Vidhey and was sent to 14 days judicial custody.
Kareli police on Sunday took 24 hours remand of Ali. Ali was then admitted back to jail after police remand ended on Monday, the official added.
Zeeshan in his complaint had alleged that Ali forced him to talk to his father (Atiq Ahmad) lodged in Ahmedabad Jail. Atiq demanded ₹5 crore extortion money from him and on his behest Ali and others attacked him when he refused.
