Prayagraj Police Commissioner Ramit Sharma said a reward of Rs 50,000 each had been declared for all those wanted, including Asad, Ghulam and Guddu Muslim, sons of Atiq, named in the case of the murder. The prize money can be further increased. The Sadaqat who was captured by the STF was driving the attackers’ Creta car during the killing. He practices at the High Court of Allahabad. During this time, the criminals were contacted. The people of the Atiq gang had deceived him that the affairs related to the disputed lands would be entrusted to him. He lives in a Muslim hostel. The whole conspiracy to kill Umesh Pal was hatched in his very bedroom.
Guddu Muslim, an expert bomb-maker, has been part of the Atiq gang for 22 years.
On the other hand, STF Bareilly, Naini and Lucknow Jail checks the visitor list of Atiq’s brother, sons and brother-in-law. Arbaz, who was killed during the encounter, is believed to be close to Atiq Ahmed. His father drives Atik Ahmed’s car. The person who is seen throwing bombs very comfortably in the CCTV footage has been identified as Guddu Muslim. The name of Atiq’s close friend Guddu also figured in the murder of games teacher Frederick J Gomes in Lucknow 25 years ago. Guddu was also arrested by Hazratganj police. Apart from this, Muslim’s name also appeared in the murder of Santosh Singh, an entrepreneur from Hussainganj. Guddu Muslim, a bomb-making expert, had traveled to Bihar after being released from prison. After that he went to Bihar.
Arbaaz was the driver of the vehicle that brought in the killers of Umesh Pal, listen to what the ADG said
Atiq’s son Asad has no criminal record
In the CCTV footage, Atiq Ahmed’s third son, Asad, is also seen shooting. He had no criminal record. He is a student at St. Joseph’s College. He was also warned once for speeding. There are six attackers including Asad on STF’s radar. STF teams are raiding many neighborhoods looking for them. ADG Law and Order Prashant Kumar said even those protecting these shooters will not be spared. Along with this, if someone gives information about them, keeping their name private, a reward will also be given.
