Asad Ahmed, the son of gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and wanted in connection with the murder of Umesh Pal, was killed at an encounter by Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) in Jhansi.

Asad, who had a bounty of Rs 5 lakhs on his head, was accompanied by his associate Ghulam, who also died during the operation. The duo were wanted by the authorities in the Umesh Pal murder case.

“Both wanted in Umesh Pal murder case of Prayagraj and carrying a reward of Rs five lakhs each; killed in encounter with the UPSTF team led by DySP Navendu and DySP Vimal at Jhansi,” a statement from the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force said.

Yogi Adityanath praised police

Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath praised the UP STF as well as DGP, Special DG Law and Order and the entire team after they killed gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmad’s son, Asad, in an encounter in Jhansi. MP CM Brajesh Pathak and KP Maurya also praised the police for the action.

Umesh Pal’s family also celebrated the meeting and thanked the CM for “doing justice”. Umesh Pal’s mother, while thanking UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, said she got herself justice. She thanked the CM for meeting Asad Ahmed. This is all we know about the Asad Ahmed meeting so far.

In February this year, Umesh Pal, a crucial witness in the 2005 murder case of BSP MLA Raju Pal, was murdered along with his two police security guards outside his home in the Dhoomanganj area of Prayagraj.

Following a complaint filed by Umesh Pal’s wife, Jaya Pal, a case was registered on 25 February against Atiq Ahmad, his brother Ashraf, Asad, Ghulam and others.

The First Information Report (FIR) submitted by Jaya Pal invoked several sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 147 (riots), 148 (armed riots with deadly weapons), 149 (unlawful assembly guilty of offense committed in the prosecution of a common objective), 302 (murder), 307 (attempted murder) and 506 (criminal intimidation). These charges reflect the seriousness of the crime and the authorities’ determination to bring the perpetrators to justice.


On social media users, Celebrate the encounter of Asad, the son of Atiq Ahmed. While the news of the encounter was met with relief by many who had been affected by the criminal activities of Atiq Ahmed and his associates, there were also reports of celebrations in certain quarters.
