Two persons have been detained from Bareilly and Sahaspur districts of Uttar Pradesh in connection with the murder case of National Investigation Agency Deputy Superintendent of Police Mohammad Tanzil.

According to police sources, the bike used in the murder has also been recovered.

It is also suspected that property dispute could be one of the reasons behind Tanzil’s murder.

The Uttar Pradesh Police on Wednesday said the investigations and analysis of evidences are pointing at some personal angle behind the murder.

Additional Director General (Law and Order) Daljeet Chowdhary said that the slain officer had some personal as well as professional matters, adding separate teams of Anti-Terrorism Squad, Special Task Force and the Uttar Pradesh police have been constituted to inquire into the same.

Tanzil was on his way back from the marriage ceremony of his niece, along with his wife and two children, when two armed bike-borne assailants shot at him and his wife in a village under Syohra police station area late in the night of April 2.

The NIA officer died on the spot, while his wife was rushed to the FortisHospital in Noida.
