Feroze was in Delhi to facilitate Haj trips, says father; he was trapped, says mother
Sayyed Feroze (38), one of the three Indian Mujahideen suspects arrested by the Delhi police in connection with the low-intensity J M Road blasts runs two garment shops, both named 'Options by Feroz' in Pune Camp.
His father said Feroze, who lives with his wife, two daughters and two sons in Guruwar Peth in the city had last met him about about 20 days ago and told him he was going to Delhi to facilitate Haj trips of some people.
On Thursday, Delhi police announced that Feroze had been picked up from the Nizamuddin railway station in Delhi and a bag containing explosives was seized from him.
His cousin Sarfaraz Quazi and business partner Mohseen Bagwan who were at the shops told Newsline that Feroze left Pune a few days ago for work but they were unable to give further details. The shops deal in readymade garments. The shop on Gaffar Baig Street has been there for the last four years, and the other on Jaan Mohammed Street, a few hundred metres from the first, was inaugurated recently during Ramzan, Quazi said.
Feroze's father Abdul Hameed runs a milk agency in Shukrawar Peth and stays in Danish Apartments building in the area.
Abdul Hameed said, "He has not been living here (Shukrawar Peth) for the last 10 years. About 20 days ago, he told me he was going to Delhi to facilitate visa procedures of some Haj pilgrims. He had gone there for similar reason two-three times in the past."
Delhi police have claimed that Feroze met Lashkar-e-Taiba operative Fayyaz Kagzi in Saudi Arabia.
Feroze's mother, who saw her son's name flashed on TV on Thursday said, "My son cannot do anything like this. He has been trapped."
