Fatehpur: Union Minister of State for Food Processing Niranjan Jyoti, Thursday, courted controversy when she said that she had no idea about the killing of National Investigation Agency (NIA) Deputy Superintendent of Police Mohammad Tanzil Ahmed.
Shockingly, when the Union Minister was asked about the murder of the NIA officer, she assumed that Ahmed was from Pakistan.
“You will be shocked to know that I have no clue of the NIA officer as I was very busy in my political activities. I did not get time to go through the newspapers or news channels,” Niranjan Jyoti said.
Several people have been questioned in connection with the killing of NIA officer Tanzil Ahmed but no arrest or detention has been made so far, police said today.
Tanzil Ahmed, probing terror cases related to Indian Mujahideen, was shot dead on April 3 by two unidentified motorcycle-borne assailants who also wounded his wife when they were returning home from a wedding near UP's Bijnor town.
The ADG had yesterday said some "personal matter" may have been the reason behind the killing and hoped to crack the case at the earliest after zeroing in on certain links.
The NIA officer died on the spot while his wife was rushed to the Fortis Hospital in Noida.
