Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh): As many as three people were arrested, informed police after mafia-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf were shot dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj on Saturday.
“Three people have been arrested. Further details are to be shared later,” said an officer after the gangster-turned-politician and his brother were shot dead in Prayagraj. Moments before their killing, both criminals, who were accused in the Umesh Pal murder case, were speaking to the media while being taken for a medical and their murder was captured on camera.
“Nahi le gaye to nahi gaye (they did not take us, so we did not go)” were Atiq Ahmed’s last words, when asked what did he have to say on not being taken to his son Asad’s funeral.
“Main baat ye hai ki Guddu Muslim …. (the thing is that Guddu Muslim…) were Ashraf’s last words.
According to visuals, both were handcuffed and taken for medical. As both proceeded, they posed questions by the mediapersons. Atiq was shot in the head from behind, nearly at point-blank range. Ashraf, too, was shot dead.
Further details are awaited.
