Although Ateeq was then jailed in Deoria, the Supreme Court directed that he should be shifted to a jail in Gujarat. He was moved from Naini jail in Allahabad to Ahmedabad's Sabarmati jail a few months ago.
A case was filed against Ateeq Ahmed for planning the abduction of Jaiswal from Lucknow and the subsequent assault in UP's Deoria jail.
