New Delhi: Following two days of investigation, Uttar Pradesh Police on Tuesday released a video grab of two suspects in National Investigation Agency (NIA) officer Tanzil Ahmed murder case.

Ahmed, probing terror cases related to Indian Mujahideen, was on Sunday shot dead by two unidentified motorcycle -borne assailants who also wounded his wife when they were returning home from a wedding near UP's Bijnor town.

In a "planned attack", the killers pumped 24 bullets at 45-year-old Mohd Tanzil Ahmad and four at his wife Farzana, as their daughter, 14, and son, 12, watched the gruesome incident from the back seat of the Wagon-R car they were travelling in, police said, adding the children were not injured.

Police termed the killing of Ahmad, posted as Inspector initially with the NIA's intelligence wing and later in its investigation department, as a "planned attack" and did not rule out the possiblity of a terror angle behind the shootout.
