Father of detained Pakistani in Chile alleges ‘racial profiling`
Islamabad: Father of Saif-ur-Rehman, the Pakistani man who was arrested in Chile on charges of entering the US embassy with traces of explosives on his clothes, has alleged that his son is being implicated in a trap, and has been made a victim of racial profiling.
Mehmood Ahmad Rehman Khan said his son, who is doing an internship in a hotel in Chile, had received a phone call asking him to appear for an identification check at the US embassy in Santiago.
He claimed that Saif, 28, had a visa, which was valid for five years.
“Saif, while chatting on the Skype with his family on May 07 (Friday), told me that a person named Bill had called him from the US embassy in Santiago and asked him to come to the US embassy for some identification check-up,” The Dawn quoted Khan, as saying.
“My son became a victim of racial profiling and has been detained without a valid reason or evidence. His arrest was clearly a setup,” he added.
