NEW DELHI: Family members of the alleged ISIS terrorist killed in Lucknow+ this morning refused to accept his body saying “a traitor” is no son of theirs.

“One who indulges in anti-national activities can’t be my son. Look, someone who’s a traitor cannot be our son. It’s that straightforward. We will absolutely not accept a traitor’s body. He has brought infamy not only to us but to the whole nation, therefore we will not accept his body for last rites” said Sartaj, the alleged terrorist’s father+ , to TOI.

Saifullah was killed+ in Lucknow this morning in an exchange of fire with the police after a 12-hour stand-off. He was suspected to be linked with the blast in the Bhopal-Ujjain train+ yesterday, police said.

Sartaj, who lives in Jajamau Tila in Kanpur, said he was shocked to hear about his son’s involvement in anti-national activities. Saifullah’s sister Zareen also was completely taken aback to hear the news. Both heard this morning that Saifullah was killed in an anti-terror operation, PTI said.

“We are Indians, we were born here, our forefathers were born here and anyone who’s a traitor can’t be a son or any relation of ours,” Sartaj said.

Sartaj said Saifullah left home about two-and-a-half months back after he beat him up for not working. Saifullah apparently told him he wanted to work as a driver in Saudi Arabia.

“On Monday, I got a call from Saifullah, who told me that he had got a visa to visit Saudi (Arabia) and he was preparing to go there. I told him go ahead,” the father said.

Saifullah was a commerce graduate of Manohar Lal College in Jajmau.
