Prayagraj: Prayagraj police have issued lookout notices against slain gangster Atiq Ahmed’s wife Shaista Parveen, and his close aides, Guddu Muslim and Sabir, officials said.
According to officials, Uttar Pradesh police have already declared a bounty of Rs 50,000 in the name of Shaista Parveen.
Despite efforts, the police are not able to trace Parveen and the other two. In such a situation, officials are of the view that they may run out of the country.
This, in turn, has prompted authorities to issue lookout notices against all three of them. Officials said that Prayagraj Police had earlier sent its report in this regard to the Uttar Pradesh government.
And on the basis of this, a lookout notice has been issued against them to prevent them from leaving the country. The notice period will be for 1 year.
The lookout notice has been sent to all immigration checkpoints, and if they are caught while trying to flee out of the country, Prayagraj police will receive an alert from the agencies concerned.
