Earlier on February 27, the third day of Umesh Pal’s murder, police, SOG and the criminal branch encountered one of the assailants, Arbaaz. Arbaaz was killed during an encounter at Nehru Park in the Dhumanganj region. He was driving the Creta car used in the attack. Arbaz, a resident of Sallahpur in Puramufti, was the driver of Asad, son of Atiq Ahmed.
It is to be noted that on February 24 last month in Prayagraj, Umesh Pal was shot while running from the middle of the road towards his house inside the street. In this cinematic-style carnage, criminals from cars and bikes bombed and fired. A shooter was waiting in the adjacent store posing as a customer. The role of the Atiq Ahmed gang came to the fore behind this. CM Yogi Adityanath had talked about mixing mafia into the ground while being furious during the editing session.
