In a recent development, the High Court of Allahabad has dismissed the writ petition filed by Ali Ahmad, son of slain gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmad. Ali Ahmad had sought security in jail, expressing apprehensions about a potential threat to his life.
Ali Ahmad’s plea to conduct the hearing of his case through video-conferencing was also included in the petition. In addition, he proposed that if necessary, he could be interrogated on the premises of the Naini Central Jail in Prayagraj, where he is currently incarcerated.
During the court proceedings, it was noted that no one appeared on behalf of the petitioner, despite the revision of the cause list.
While the court’s ruling signifies a setback for Ali Ahmad’s request for additional security, it is essential to consider the circumstances and merits of the case. The court’s decision implies that Ali Ahmad’s concerns did not hold sufficient weight or evidence to warrant the requested security provisions.
It is worth mentioning that the High Court of Allahabad is diligent in addressing matters related to the safety and well-being of individuals in custody. The court takes into account the available facts and circumstances to make informed decisions in such cases. As per this instance, the court deemed it unnecessary to grant Ali Ahmad the requested security in jail.
