Umesh Pal murder: Another Atiq Ahmed aide faces ‘bulldozer action’

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)
