Lucknow: Shravan Sahu murder case police on Tuesday counselled witnesses to testify against gangster Akeel Ansari in Ayush Sahu and Shravan Sahu. The step has been taken as the jailed gangster is trying to intimidate traders, said officer in charge of Saadatganj police station, Samar Bahadur Yadav.
In October 2013, Akeel Ansari had shot dead Ayush Sahu, 26, outside a beer shop in Thakurganj. Ayush's father Shravan had lodged an FIR against Akeel and was pursuing the case before he, too, was killed on February 1, at Akeel's behest. Yadav said, "We have picked up three people for questioning and are hopeful of a breakthrough in the case soon."
