Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) leader Farooq Ahmed, the former vice-chairman of Adilabad municipality open fired on a group of people over a truffle between children regarding a cricket match. He fired on them using his revolver, which was seized by police, and also, the license of the gun was canceled. Currently, Farooq is under arrest and is booked for attempt to murder. On the other hand, AIMIM disestablished the town after the incident.

The video of the incident went viral on social media in which MIM leader, Farooq was seen with the revolver in one hand and a knife in another.

Three people sustained serious injuries out of which one of the victims, Syed Zameer, died during undergoing treatment at Nizam Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) on the morning of 26th December. Syed Zameer was a former councilor from Tatigunda in Adilabad. Along with Zameer, his brother, Syed Mannan, and his nephew Syed Mohtesin were also injured.

It is now being decided by the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) to announce a new president of the unit and to dissolve the current Adilabad unit.

It was noted by police officials that the reason for the conflict seems to be a personal grudge between the parties. Both the families seemed to have some political rivalry. The police came to know from the sources that Farooq’s wife defeated a woman relative of Zameer in the elections that held last year. This is identified as the main reason of the dispute between both parties.

Compensation of Rs 2 crore for the family and a position in a government job for one of the family members is demanded from the government by Adilabad DCC in charge Sajid Khan.

The situation is being handled by Ramagundam police commissioner V. Satyanarayana to prevent further incidents.
