Days after the killing of gangster-politician Atiq Ahmad and his brother Ashraf, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday warned that “now mafias cannot threaten anyone in the state”. He added, “Those who were a threat to UP earlier…now UP is a threat to them.”

“Before 2017, the law and order in the state was not good, but after that, there is a rule of law in the state. From 2017 to 2023, there have been no riots in Uttar Pradesh; there was no need for a curfew,” Yogi Aditynath said while speaking at a function.

However, the recent encounter killing of Atiq Ahmad's son Asad in Jhansi has raised concerns about police action in the state. At the same time, a sealed letter written by Atiq Ahmad has reportedly been sent to the Chief Justice of India and the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, though its contents are unknown.

The killing of Atiq and Ashraf Ahmad has also sparked outrage, as the incident was caught on live TV. The shooters, who posed as journalists, fired multiple times at the brothers while being surrounded by police. The three attackers have been identified as Sunny Singh, Lavlesh Tiwari, and Arun Maurya.
