Muneer, the prime accused in the murder case of Deputy Superintendent of Police of National Investigation Agency (NIA), Tanzeel Ahmed, was arrested by the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) on 28 June.

Muneer has been arrested from Noida and has been taken to an undisclosed location for questioning.

The Uttar Pradesh Police had announced a reward of Rs 2 lakh on Muneer, who was absconding in the murder case of Tanzeel Ahmed.

The police had earlier said Muneer, who is the main accused of murder case, formed a gang along with his two associates and attacked Tanzeel Ahmed, when he was driving back home with his family from a wedding near his village Sahaspur in Bijnor.

According to reports, different investigative agencies along with the NIA are questioning Muneer.

Ahmed, an assistant commandant with the Border Security Force (BSF) on deputation to the NIA, was killed by two motorcycle-borne assailants in April this year, when he was driving back home with his family from a wedding near his village Sahaspur in Bijnor.

According to reports, Ahmed had proceeded on leave on 1 April after completing his job as the liaison officer for the five-member Pakistan Joint Investigation Team (JIT) that was in Delhi to probe the Pathankot attack.
