By Kumar Abhishek, Pankaj Srivastava: Jailed gangster-politician Atiq Ahmed’s lawyer Nisar Ahmad on Thursday said that they would oppose the police remand. Uttar Pradesh Police will seek the gangster’s remand for questioning in the Umesh Pal murder case. The hearing of the case is underway.
“Why does the police need remand when Atiq is already in jail and that too in a high-profile one? In such a situation, what is the need for interrogation? We will oppose this,” said Atiq’s lawyer Nisar Ahmad.
Lawyers created a ruckus on the premises of the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Court in Prayagraj as Atiq arrived for court hearing on Thursday. The lawyers at the CJM court hurled abuses at Atiq by taking his name.
Atiq’s health has deteriorated before the hearing. He requested the jail administration to meet his son Ali.
