NIA terror probe official shot dead in Uttar Pradesh

A senior officer posted with the NIA was shot dead and his wife was seriously injured when two unidentified motorcycle-borne assailants sprayed bullets on the couple in the early hours of Sunday in Bijnore district of Uttar Pradesh.

The killers pumped bullets into Mohammed Tanzil Ahmad, the NIA officer, and his wife Farzana, as their 14-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son watched the gruesome incident from the back seat of the Wagon-R car they were travelling in, the police said. The children were not injured. Ahmad was returning home to Sahaspur village of Bijnor district with his family after attending his niece's wedding in a nearby village in the same district, which is about 150 km from New Delhi.

Union home minister Rajnath Singh said that he had been apprised about the incident. The UP police has sealed the borders of the district and launched a manhunt. “We are also in touch with NIA officers and coordinating with them. We will go deep into it and ensure that those involved are arrested,” UP DGP Javed Ahmad told reporters in Lucknow.
