Atique Ahmed (born 10 August 1962) is an Indian criminal-politician belonging to the Samajwadi Party. In 2004-2009, he was a member of the 14th Lok Sabha from the Phulpur (Lok Sabha Constituency) in Uttar Pradesh.[1] He is currently facing trial in 35 criminal cases including several cases of murder[2]

2009 General Elections[edit]

In the 2009 General Elections, Atiq Ahmad was allowed to run for election (since he is yet to be convicted in any case).[3] However, the Samajwadi Party had expelled him in 2008, and Mayawati refused him a ticket under BSP,[4] so he stood from the Apna Dal party from Pratapgarh, but he lost (ranked fourth).[5]
