In a shocking turn of events, the city police in Prayagraj have uncovered a 32-second CCTV footage that captures the brutal Dhoomanganj attack. The footage reveals Umesh Pal, a crucial witness in the murder case of BSP MLA Raju Pal back in 2005, grappling with an attacker. The assailant, who can be seen in the footage, is identified as Mohammad Asad, the son of mafia don-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed.
The officer in charge of the case, who wished to remain anonymous, has confirmed that Asad can be seen opening fire on Umesh in the video footage that has now gone viral on social media. Asad’s involvement in the Dhoomanganj shootout is yet another incident that adds to his criminal record. Currently, he is wanted in connection with the incident and carries a substantial sum of Rs 5 lakh cash reward.
The CCTV footage clearly shows Umesh running towards a narrow passage, with Asad hot on his heels, firing multiple shots at point-blank range. The entire incident is a startling reminder of the dangerous state of affairs in the region, and the reign of terror that the mafia has long held over the city.
The footage is a critical piece of evidence that could help the police with their investigations and bring the perpetrators to justice. However, it also raises serious questions about the safety of the common man in Prayagraj, and highlights the urgent need for strong, decisive action to be taken against the mafia and other criminal elements in the city. It is time to restore law and order in the city, and ensure that every citizen is safe and secure in their own neighborhoods.
