Prayagraj: Three people, including gangster Atiq Ahmed, have been convicted by an MP-MLA court in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, in the 17-year-old Umesh Pal kidnapping case. Seven accused, including his brother Ashraf, have been acquitted. There were 11 accused in this case, one of whom has died.
The court convicted Atiq Ahmed, Khan Soulat and Dinesh Pasi. They can also be sentenced on Tuesday. Those acquitted are Ashraf alias Khalid Azim, Farhan, Javed alias Bajju, Abid, Israr, Ashiq alias Malli and Ejaz Akhtar.
On the other hand, in the Umesh Pal murder case, the Supreme Court has also dismissed the appeal to give security to Atiq Ahmed. Atiq had said in the petition that as long as he is in the custody of The Uttar Pradesh Police, he should be given protection. Atiq had said that he does not want to be shifted to a jail in Uttar Pradesh. On this, the Supreme Court asked Atiq’s lawyer to go to the High Court with his complaint.
Let us tell you that Atiq Ahmed has dominated 8 surrounding districts including Prayagraj for more than 20 years. According to the UP Police dossier, there are 101 cases registered against Atiq’s gang IS-227. Out of which 50 cases are currently going on in the court. These include cases under the NSA, gangster and goonda act. The first case against Atiq was filed in 1979.
When Atiq was taken to the court, lawyers in the campus shouted ‘hang two hanging’ slogans. Earlier, Atiq was brought to the court in a locked van from Naini Central Jail. It had CCTV cameras and curtains. The distance of 10 km to the court was covered in 28 minutes. In the Umesh Pal kidnapping case, 11 people including Bahubali Atiq Ahmed, his brother Ashraf were accused, one of whom has died. Atiq was brought to Prayagraj from Sabarmati jail in Ahmedabad on Monday evening and his brother Ashraf from Bareilly jail. Both were lodged in the high security barrack at Naini Central Jail.
