Submitted by Kumuda on Thu, 2016-04-07 12:55 Fatehpur (Uttar Pradesh): Smelling controversy behind the killing of National Investigation Agency (NIA) Deputy Superintendent of Police Mohammad Tanzil Ahmed, Minister of State for Food Processing Niranjan Jyoti on Thursday demanded a thorough investigation into the matter. "The investigating officer of Pathankot terror attack has been killed. In most of the cases, terrorists from Azamgarh and Bijnor are arrested. There is some controversy in that. This is a matter of investigation," Jyoti told the media here. The Uttar Pradesh Police earlier today detained two prime suspects for their alleged role in the murder of Tanzil, who was shot dead in front of his wife and children last week. According to police sources, the bike used in the murder has also been recovered. It is also suspected that property dispute could be one of the reasons behind Tanzil's murder. Tanzil was on his way back from the marriage ceremony of his niece, along with his wife and two children, when two armed bike-borne assailants shot at him and his wife in a village under Syohra Police Station area late in the night of April 2. The NIA officer died on the spot while his wife was rushed to the Fortis Hospital in Noida. (ANI)
