Bangladeshi Boy’s father denies son’s involvement in New York Bomb plot

According to latest news, the father of a Bangladeshi boy accused of his involvement in the New York Federal Reserve Bank blow plot has denied on Thursday that his son was involved and said he was the victim of a “racist conspiracy”.

The 21-years-old Bangladeshi boy, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, was arrested on Wednesday by New York police and now he is under police custody and facing charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to Al Qaeda.

Talking to media in Dhaka, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis’s father said, “This is nothing but a conspiracy. There is still a racist conspiracy there.”

He added, “The intelligence of the USA is playing with a mere boy whom we sent for higher study. The allegation against my son is not true at all. He could not even drive a car. How was he caught with a van?”

Meanwhile, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis appeared in a Brooklyn court on Wednesday. The city police had logged a criminal complaint against him, it is said that he arrived at the United States in January this year and that he had said he was in contact with members of al Qaeda overseas.

Further, the police complaint said Nafis had moved from one place to another in a van with a man to a New York warehouse where Nafis assembled what he thought was a 1,000-pound (450-kg) bomb.

The complaint said that the person traveled with Nafis was an undercover agent of FBI and the explosives were not in working condition. Police arrested him from his hotel room.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis had been a business student at North South University, a high-status private institution in Bangladesh, before leaving to study computer science in the United States.

Nafis’s father is a senior vice president of a private bank, said Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis was the more religious of his two children, but in no way a fanatic. His father told media that he had asked the government for help “so that our son will not fall victim to an arranged story”.

His father said, “He fell into trap.” He added, “We talked with him 24 hours before he was arrested.”
