Sabeel's parents not happy with delay

The parents of Sabeel Ahmed, one of the accused in the botched Glassgow airport terror attack, on Wednesday expressed displeasure over the delay in deporting their son to India.

"Even 12 days after the UK authorities decided to deport Sabeel, the progress on the entire process is slow. The Indian High Commission (in the UK) is going slow in completing the required paper work", Zakia Ahmed, mother of Sabeel, told PTI.

"My son called up twice in the last 12 days and told me that the process of deporting him is on and did not elaborate. But we feel it is being delayed", Zakia said.

"We will go by the advise of our lawyers in the U.K", she said.

Sabeel the brother of Kafeel, who drove the burning jeep into the airport and later succumbed to burns, admitted on April 11 he was 'guilty' of not sharing information which could have prevented the terror attack on the charges of which he had been arrested and detained.

On April 12, UK authorities decided to deport him to India.
