The wife of NIA officer Tanzil Ahmad, who was shot dead by a group of three people last week while on his way back from a wedding party in Bijnor, has passed away, reports ANI.
Farzana too had suffered injuries when Ahmad was attacked by three gunmen.
Farzana had been referred to the AIIMS trauma centre from Noida’s Fortis Hospital on Monday evening where she had been kept in ICU and was battling for her life.
Tanzil Ahmed, who was reportedly probing terror cases related to the Indian Mujahideen, was shot dead on April 3 by two unidentified motorcycle-borne assailants who also wounded Farzana, when they were returning home from a wedding.
The main accused Munir was assisted by two others namely Reyan and Junaid.
Police had arrested both Junaid and Reyhan. Both of them have confessed to being part of the murder.
“During interrogation, it has been revealed that one of accused Reyaan sought help from Tanzil ji in a case. Some of the statements given by Reyaan (accused) and his father have been verified by circumstantial evidence, some is yet to be verified. Reyaan grew resentful towards NIA officer Tanzeel Ahmed as he didn’t get the help he had sought,” Vijay Meena, Inspector General, Bareilly.
