Ranchi: The father of a Ranchi youth, who was arrested on suspicion of being an agent of Pakistani spy agency ISI, on Monday denied the charges and said his son was a businessman.
Fazulur Rehman`s son Faizal was arrested in Uttar Pradesh`s Kanpur district on Sunday.
"My son is innocent. He is a businessman. He is not an ISI agent. He had gone to New Delhi four days ago for business purposes," Fazlur told reporters here.
Faizal, a resident of Ranchi, was married to a Pakistani girl.
"My son had visited Pakistan one year ago. His wife stays in Ranchi," he said.
Faizal and his family live in a Heavy Engineering Corporation (HEC) quarter here.
Based on the Uttar Pradesh Police`s inputs, Ranchi police on Sunday searched the house of Faizal. According to police sources, some incriminating documents were found.
