UK police to quiz Sabeel

The UK police are to arrive in Bangalore next month to quiz Dr Sabeel Ahmed as part of their investigations into the attack on Glasgow airport in June 2007.

The 28 year-old doctor's mother Dr Zakia Ahmed, however, seems nonchalant, saying their visit would not help unravel much—not even any dubious cash transactions.

Sabeel declined to comment on the probe by the UK police because he is indisposed.

His mother said, “Let them come. There’s nothing new for them to ask. We have not committed any theft anywhere. All transactions are legitimate.”

She told HT that Sabeel is likely to settle down and accept a job offer from one of the local hospitals. “He’s got many offers, and most (of them) are local. I want him to take up a job and live here,” she said.

Sabeel is the younger brother of Dr Kafeel Ahmed, who drove a jeep filled with propane canisters into the Glasgow airport terminal on June 30, 2007.

Sabeel was deported to India on May 8, 2008 after being sentenced to 18 months in jail for withholding information about his brother’s plot to blow up Glasgow airport. Kafeel, an aeronautical engineer, subsequently succumbed to burns on August 2, 2007.
