Soura police station on Friday morning raided a house of Fazli Hussain who was falsely implicated in serial blasts that shook Delhi in 2005.
Reports said that on Friday morning a heavy deployment of police was around his house in a bid to arrest him. However, Fazli was not present there and his brother was arrested instead.
Fazli was released in 2017 from Tihar jail after 12 years.
Mohammad Hussain Fazili – a small-time shawl weaver from Srinagar’s Bachpora locality – was 31 when he was arrested from his house on November 21, 2005. The following day, he was blindfolded and Delhi police personnel in civilian clothes flew him to Delhi without informing his family. He was subsequently jailed for 12 years as falsely accused in the New Delhi serial blasts that killed 67 people ahead of Diwali on October 29, 2005. On the morning of February 18, following his acquittal by a Delhi court on February 16, he stepped into his house after more than a decade
Family sources of Fazili said that he was being repeatedly called by the Soura police station to present himself there. But since he had no case and was not involved in any political activity, he denied going there.
They said that the mother of Fazili is bedridden and any untoward news can prove fatal to her
