BIJNOR: Over a hundred people have been questioned following raids at several places in connection with the killing of NIA officer Tanzil Ahmed but no arrest has been made so far, Uttar Pradesh DGP Javeed Ahmed said today.            

"No person has been arrested yet. However, over a hundred people have been questioned in raids conducted in Delhi, Bijnor and Aligarh," Ahmed said here.
