New Twist In Tanzeel Ahmed’s Murder Case, UP Police Suspects Personal Enmity

The brutal murder of NIA officer Tanzeel Ahmed could be because of personal reasons, a senior UP police officer said on Wednesday.
“There are various angles to the murder that we are looking into. There are grounds for both professional as well as personal motive. But our investigation is zeroing on the personal,” UP ADG (law and order) Daljit Singh Chowdhary told reporters after a meeting with NIA officals at the agency headquarters.
Chowdhary refused to share further details saying that UP ATS was also looking at terror angle and that police was close to cracking the case and culprits would be caught soon.
Sources in UP police and NIA, however, said the leads that the agencies have point towards a property dispute that is likely to have gone awry. “Tanzeel was also someone to whom people in and around his village went to sort out local disputes, including those of property. There are indications that something went wrong in this regard. However, it is too premature to exactly say what happened unless the killers are caught. But a professional reason for the murder is increasingly looking remote,” said an officer involved with the investigation.
