A First Information Report (FIR) filed on 8th May 2023 in Uttar Pradesh reveals that the wife of Atiq Ahmed, Shaista Parveen, is going to be declared a ‘mafia.’ Ahmed is a former Member of Parliament (MP) and a gangster-turned-politician.
Details of the FIR
The FIR, filed at the Colonelganj Police Station in Kanpur, says that Parveen was involved in illegal activities. These include running an extortion racket and facilitating land-grabbing in Kanpur. The FIR also alleges that she is part of a larger network of organized crime.
Atiq Ahmed’s Background
Ahmed has been associated with criminal activities in Uttar Pradesh since the 1980s. In 2018, the Supreme Court of India ordered him to surrender before the authorities in connection with several criminal cases against him. He was subsequently arrested in December 2018.
Impact of FIR
The FIR against Parveen is likely to have significant political ramifications in Uttar Pradesh, where organized crime is a major issue. The state is due to hold assembly elections in 2024, and the ruling party, as well as the opposition, are likely to use the FIR to score political points.
