Meanwhile, Yusuf’s family members have expressed shocked at the developments.
Kafeel Ahmed (father of ISIS operative Abu Yusuf who was arrested y’day in Delhi) in Balrampur said, “I regret he was involved in such activities. I wish he could be forgiven for once if possible but his act is wrong. Had I known about his activities I would have asked him to leave us”.
Wife of Abu Yusuf (ISIS operative arrested from Delhi y’day) however, said that such material was stored in her house
“He had stored gunpowder & other materials at home here. When I told him he should not do such things, he told me that I should not stop him. I wish he could be forgiven. I have four kids. Where will I go?”, she told reporters.
