New Delhi: Expressing his condolences to the family of NIA officer Tanzil Ahmad, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today said that he was shocked by the horrific act and added that those responsible for the former’s murder must be brought to justice.
“Brutal murder of NIA officer Tanzil Ahmad investigating key terror cases including Pathankot is extremely shocking. My heartfelt condolences to his family. Those responsible for his murder must be brought to justice,” Gandhi’s office said in a series of tweets.
Tanzil, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, was returning home with his wife after attending a wedding function late on Saturday night when assailants on motor bikes shot the couple from close range near Sahaspur town.
Tanzil was pronounced dead on arrival at a medical facility in Moradabad, while his wife Farzana is battling for her life at the Fortis Hospital in Noida.
A medical report from the hospital said that doctors are providing best medical treatment to Farzana.
Tanzil, who was given a martyr status, was on deputation with the NIA and was part of the Pathankot terror attack probe. (ANI)
