PRAYAGRAJ (UP): Authorities on Thursday began bulldozing the house here of an aide of gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed, the second such action in two days.
Three bulldozers were deployed to demolish the two-storey building owned by Safdar Ali, an alleged arms trader linked to Ahmed.
Ahmed, currently lodged in a Gujarat prison, has been booked in connection with the recent killing of Umesh Pal, a key witness in the 2005 murder of BSP MLA Raju Pal.
Prayagraj Development Authority officials said the building being demolished in the Dhoomanganj police station area was built illegally. (PTI)
