House owned by Atiq’s relative demolished | Allahabad News


Prayagraj: Prayagraj Development Authority (PDA) on Saturday demolished a house in Salahapur which was registered under the name of a relative of former MP and jailed don Atiq Ahmed. The house is registered under the name of Mohammad Zaid, who is the brother-in-law of Atiq’s younger brother Khalid Azim alias Ashraf.
The house spans over an area of around 600 square yards in Hatwa village, bordering Puramufti police station in Kaushambi district. The land is under the revenue jurisdiction of Prayagraj district. The property is estimated to be around Rs 10 crore.
PDA’s zonal officer Sat Shukla said, “The house was built without getting a map approved from PDA. We had issued several notices to the owner, but received no reply. Later, we decided to raze the building.” He said that the drive started around 10.30am. All belongings of the people living in the house were shifted out before the building was demolished.
Apart from the area on which the building was constructed, around a thousand yards of land were lying vacant around the house. The entire area was converted into a Cantonment and a large number of policemen and PAC personnel were deployed.
