New Delhi: Arrested 26/11 plotter Abu Jundal's mother on Thursday blamed the security agencies of falsely implicating his son, saying Jundal was not a terrorist. She said that no DNA test was conducted on Jundal to match his prints. Jundal was arrested by a special cell of the Delhi Police last week for his role in the 26/11 case.
Rihana Begum on Thursday held a press conference in Beed district of Maharashtra to defend his son in the Mumbai terror attack case. "No DNA was conducted. My son is being implicated. He is not a terrorist. My son is a religious person, he can't do anything like this," Begum said.
Earlier, Jundal's family expressed desire to meet him to confirm the identity, saying if Jundal is guilty, he must be punished.
Jundal's cousin said that he should be punished but his family members must not be troubled. "The government should conduct a DNA test of Jundal and his parents to confirm his identity,- he said.
Jundal was taken to Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital on Wednesday night for a medical examination. He remains in the custody of the Delhi Police.
Sources say Jundal is the highest ranked Indian in terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba and his questioning is proving to be a key link in establishing the involvement of Pakistan state actors in the Mumbai terror attacks.
Meanwhile, reports say Jundal's father is a heart patient and his condition deteriorated after he came to know about his son's arrest. Jundal is presently under Delhi police's custody and is being interrogated for conspiring 26/11 attacks.
