“Initially, Yaseen’s family had lodged a case against unidentified criminals. However, later, a video surfaced in which he was seen accusing Sajid Ali of opening fire on him. Yaseen said he had gone fishing in the pond near Sajid Ali’s resort in Shahjahanpur on Monday evening when he was prevented from doing so and was shot at,” said Singh.

“We added Sajid’s name on the basis of that video,” said Singh, adding, “He is absconding and a recommendation has been made to the SSP of Meerut to declare a cash reward on him. We are also seeking a warrant in his name from the court.”

Earlier on Tuesday night, police had raided the Meerut residence of former minister and BSP leader Haji Yaqoob Qureshi in connection with a case of land grabbing and attempt to murder registered against him and his son Imran Qureshi. The duo was found missing during the raid.
