The authorities on Thursday took a decisive action by demolishing an illegally constructed house belonging to Faizi, the brother-in-law of the late gangster Atiq Ahmad. The structure, which was under further construction, was empty when the notice was served, officials reported.

According to Hashmi, Zonal Officer of the Prayagraj Development Authority (PDA), the house was unlawfully built on Waqf land within the jurisdiction of the Pura Mufti police station by Ahmad's in-laws. A notice issued under the Uttar Pradesh Urban Planning Act gave Faizi a chance to present his case, which remained unanswered.

As a result, demolition orders were implemented, and the property, spread over 2,100 square feet, was razed on Thursday. The building was sealed following its demolition. Notably, Atiq Ahmad and his brother Ashraf were fatally shot on April 15 last year while in police custody. Their wives, Shahista Praveen and Jainab, are currently fugitives.
