New Delhi The Bihar Police Headquarters on Tuesday said they are not aware of Bihar terror module allegedly run by suspected Indian Mujahideen operative Fasih Mehmood, who has been deported to India after five months of detention in Saudi Arabia.

“We are not in the know of any Bihar module of terror allegedly run by Fasih. He did not have any criminal record in Darbhanga district,” Director General of Police Abhayanand told Daily Bhaskar.

The family of Fasih has decided to move the Supreme Court for speedy trial.

“We will request the Supreme Court for speedy trial so that Fasih is proved innocent at the earliest,” his father Dr Firoz Ahmed told Daily Bhaskar over phone from Darbhanga.
“My father (Mehmood Babu) was chief of Keoti panchayat for 22 years and respected by all section of people because of his clean image…my family does not have any criminal antecedents,” Ahmed said.
He said, “We have full faith in the Supreme Court which will do justice to my son.”
“Fasih’s wife Nikhat Parveen and mother Amra Jamal have gone to Delhi,” Ahmed, who is Medical Officer of Government Primary Health Centre at Benipatti in neighbouring Madhubani district, said.
Fasih’s mother is headmistress of an Urdu school in Darbhanga.

Talking to Daily Bhaskar, management graduate Nikhat has asked several questions to both Indian and Saudi governments:

“If there is no allegation against my husband in Saudi Arabia, how can he be arrested there?

“If the Indian agencies say that they had no role in his arrest, how is it that after I filed the habeas corpus, they issued a warrant on May 28 and a Red Corner Notice against him on May 31?
“Despite the government claiming to have no role in Fasih’s arrest, why was it that the Saudi government was accusing the Indian government of not being able to produce any logical evidence against him and the Indian government was talking about producing the said evidence?”

Nikhat had approached the Supreme Court in May this year claiming that her husband was in the custody of central security agencies, a charge denied by the government.

Security agencies are investigating Fasih’s suspected involvement in the Chinnaswamy Stadium blast in Bangalore and the shooting near Jama Masjid (Delhi). Both the incident took place in 2010, and Fasih is wanted by Delhi and Karnataka police.

Fasih’s family hails from Barh Samaila village, about 35 km from the Darbhanga town.

Fasih did his intermediate from Millat college in Darbhanga and engineering from Anjuman Engineering college at Bhatkal in Karnataka. Five years back, he went to Saudi Arabia. Fasih was employed as an engineer in a Saudi firm.
