“Jamia Millia Islamia lost an Alumni Tanzil Ahmad.
Last time I met him in November 2015 during MMAJ dinner.
He was a wonderful person and a good human being.
I was having a connection through Jamia NCC where we shared a lot of great memories.
Iam totally shocked & saddened by his sudden demise.
I hope authorities will soon catch the murderers and deliver the justice.
May Allah swt rest his soul in peace and give Sabr to his family members.
#RIPTanzil,” he wrote.

“He was attending his niece’s marriage. He was with his wife and two children. Two bike-borne assailants shot fire at them. They were referred to the Cosmos hospital,” Station House Officer Rajkumar said and reported a daily.

Ahmed was also a part of the NIA team involved in the investigation of Pathankot Air Force terror attack.
