The police have attached the house of the notorious sharpshooter Guddu Muslim, associated with the mafia Atiq Ahmad in Chakiya Niratul. Under the leadership of SP Dhoomanganj Varun Kumar, Inspector-in-Charge Rajesh Kumar Maurya carried out the operation with a heavy police force.
The residents of the locality were informed after conducting a thorough investigation. Prior to this, the Prayagraj Development Authority (PDA) had sealed Guddu Muslim's house, Navbharat Times reported.
It is worth mentioning that Guddu Muslim is the same shooter who, during the Umesh Pal murder incident on 24 February, pulled out a bomb from a bag and threw it. It was Guddu Muslim's bomb that claimed the life of a gunner during the incident.
A reward of 5 lakh was announced on Guddu Muslim in connection with the Umesh Pal murder case. The CCTV footage of the incident had gone viral.
Guddu has been evading the police for about 8 months after giving them the slip. The entire police force is still struggling to apprehend Guddu Muslim.
