Days after mafia Atiq was killed on camera, a viral video sparked a political controversy. In a viral video Congress leader, Rajkumar Raju was seen paying tribute to the mafia Atiq Ahmed. He laid the Indian flag on his grave and recited `Kalma` at the grave and says he`ll fight to get the honour to Atiq and Ashraf Ahmed. Blaming BJP Government, Raju called Atiq `Shaheed` and demanded `Bharat Ratna` for him. Reacting to the incident, Prayagraj Congress President Pradeep Kumar Mishra expelled him from the party for 6 years.
