Atiq Ahmed: The brother of mobster Atiq Ahmed, Ashraf Ahmed, claims a cop threatened to kill him. One of the seven people found not guilty in the 2006 Umesh Pal kidnapping case is Ashraf Ahmed. Ashraf was moved to the Bareilly jail on Tuesday, while Atiq was transported to the Sabarmati jail in Gujarat. As he was being transported to Bareilly jail, Ashraf made the threat that he would be released in two weeks and killed.
Ashraf said that an officer had threatened to kill him
Ashraf said that an officer had threatened to kill him after he was released from custody in two weeks. He added that Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, is aware of his suffering because phoney charges were also brought against him. “The accusations made against me are untrue. CM recognises my suffering as he too was the target of false accusations “Said he. Commenting about the threat, Ashraf stated that the chief minister, the chief justice of India, and the chief justice of Allahabad will all receive the senior official’s name who made the threat against him.
More than 100 complaints filed against Atiq Ahmad over the years
Atiq Ahmad, a gangster-turned-politician, and two other people were found guilty on Tuesday in the 2006 Umesh Pal kidnapping case and given harsh prison terms for the rest of their lives by an MP-MLA court in Prayagraj. The court found Khalid Azim alias Ashraf, Ahmad’s brother, and six other defendants not guilty. Despite the fact that Ahmad, a former Samajwadi Party (SP) MP, had more than 100 complaints filed against him over the years, this is his first conviction.
The money would be given to the family of Umesh Pal
Attorney for the government Gulab Chandra Agrahari stated that section 364A (kidnapping or abduction with order to murder) of the Indian Criminal Code was used to convict Ahmad, Saulat Hanif, a lawyer, and Dinesh Pasi (IPC). The money would be given to the family of Umesh Pal, who was shot dead in front of his Prayagraj home on February 24, according to Agrahari. “The court has sentenced the trio to rigorous imprisonment for life and levied a punishment of Rs 1 lakh apiece,” Agrahari said. In the murder investigation, the two brothers have also been named as suspects.
