In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves across the country, both the notorious don Atiq Ahmed and his brother, Mohammad Ashraf, were shot dead on live television while being escorted by the Uttar Pradesh police in Prayagraj. The brazen attack has once again highlighted the dangerous nexus between crime and politics in the state, where violence and lawlessness have become all too common. The incident has also raised serious questions about the safety and security of undertrials, as well as the ability of the police to protect them in such situations.
Atiq Ahmed, who was once a Member of Parliament and a former Samajwadi Party leader, had a long history of criminal activities ranging from murder to extortion and kidnapping. He was currently lodged in a high-security prison in Gujarat, but his influence and power still loomed large in the world of crime and politics in Uttar Pradesh. His brother, Mohammad Ashraf, was also involved in the world of crime and was being taken to a court hearing when the attack occurred. The two were reportedly being transported in the same vehicle when the attackers opened fire, killing them both on the spot.
The incident has once again brought to the fore the rampant violence and criminal activities that have plagued Uttar Pradesh for decades. Despite various measures taken by the state government to crack down on crime, the nexus between crime and politics seems to be as strong as ever. The brazenness of the attack, which was carried out in broad daylight and on live television, has sent shockwaves across the country and raised serious questions about the state of law and order in the state. The police have launched a massive manhunt for the attackers and have promised to bring them to justice.
