Gangster Atiq Ahmed brought to Prayagraj jail; to be kept in specially prepared high security barrack


Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh): Gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed on Monday was brought to Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj jail after an over 24-hour long drive from Gujarat.

Atiq Ahmed has been shifted to Prayagraj’s Naini jail from Gujarat’s Sabarmati jail as he has to be produced before a court on March 28 in connection with a kidnapping case.

Security was beefed up outside Naini jail and a heavy deployment of uniformed personnel was seen outside the jail premises. 

Uttar Pradesh Jail Minister Dharamveer Prajapati told that security has been tightened and a high-security barrack with mounted CCTV cameras has been prepared at Naini jail in Prayagraj (where Atiq Ahmed will be lodged).

Atiq Ahmed on Sunday was taken out by a 45-member team of Uttar Pradesh police from Ahmedabad’s Sabarmati Jail where he was lodged.

Earlier, Ahmed on Sunday expressed fear that he might be murdered while being taken to Prayagraj from Ahmedabad’s Sabarmati Central jail by Uttar Pradesh police.
