A relative of Mohammed Haneef, charged with supporting the UK-terror plot, left Bangalore on Saturday for Australia to assist the detained person, especially in the judicial process.
"The role of Imran Siddiqi (Haneef's cousin) will be to assist the lawyer in providing the information required and communicate the developments (in the case) to the family," Firdous Arshiya, wife of Haneef, told PTI.
She said Haneef's lawyer had requested that a "family person" should be present in Australia. "Imran has travelled abroad several times and is a knowledgeable person," she said.
The Australian Immigration Department granted a tourist visa to Siddiqi after "character and security assessments".
