Notorious Gangster-Turned-Politician Atiq Ahmed's Son Asad Killed in Encounter with UP Police

The Uttar Pradesh police encountered and killed Asad Ahmed, who was the son of the infamous gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed, in Jhansi. Asad was wanted in the murder case of lawyer Umesh Pal, who was a witness in the 2005 murder of BSP MLA Raju Pal. Asad was on the run since he was captured by a CCTV camera during the attack on Pal. Asad and his co-accused, Ghulam, had a reward of ₹ 5 lahks on their heads. During the encounter, Ghulam fired at the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force team, and as a result, both of them were killed in the police's retaliatory action.
