Four teams of the CBI comprising around 40 officials are engaged in search operations. The purpose of the raids was to conduct searches for the Mohit Jaiswal case. Jaiswal, a businessman, was allegedly called by Ateeq Ahmed to Deoria jail where he was assaulted by the don and his henchmen.

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.
