“We did not take the national highway route and followed another route. At around 12.45 am, we came across Tanzeel’s car standing to the left side of the road. We ran to the car and found Tanzeel’s body riddled with bullets. Farzana was still alive. We rushed her to hospital,” said Ruksana.

She added that Tanzeel was brought to the police post in Sahaspur. “We reached the city hospital at around 1.15 am, but her condition was very bad. Later, we went to Cosmos Hospital, which referred us to Fortis in Noida,” she said.

Ruksana said herson told her that two men on a bike started firing at them. “The last thing Tanzeel said to them was to duck behind the seats,” she said.

She also asked why Tanzeel was not provided adequate security or even a gun. NIA IG Sanjeev Singh, who was at the hospital to visit the officer’s wife, said, “There is an option to avail a service gun when necessary. He might not have felt it was required on that day.”
