Mumbai: The families of Abdul Latif and Riyaz Ali, arrested for allegedly planning terror strikes in the city, today claimed that the duo were falsely implicated by the police and had nothing to do with terror activities.


Aziza Shaikh, mother of Riyaz, said, "My son Riyaz and son-in-law Abdul Latif, who married my daughter, are innocent. They have nothing to do with any terror activities."


Riyaz had completed his computer course recently and was looking for a job in a call centre, she said.


"He has been working in a shop selling clothes in Thakkar Mall," said Aziza, a resident of suburban Dahisar.


"When Riyaz did not return home on Friday night, we thought he was hanging out with his friends. But yesterday, his father Abu Bakar received a call informing him that our son was arrested by ATS," she said.


"My son and my son-in-law have been falsely implicated," she said.


Nusrat, wife of Abdul Latif, said, "My husband never indulged in any activities which are against our country. Whatever police are saying is false."


"Police conducted searches at our house in Bandra yesterday and took away the photographs of my husband, who was involved in stitching covers of electronic appliances," said Nusrat, mother of two girls.


Interestingly, Parjapati the owner of the shop at Thakkar Mall where Riyaz Ali was working also said, Riyaz was hardworking and honest in his duties and he never suspected him of involving in any such activities.


Abdul Latif alias Guddu (29) and Riyaz Ali alias Rehan (23) were arrested by the ATS March 14 for allegedly planning to carry out terrorist attacks in the city.


The duo had allegedly conducted a recce of three targets in the city - headquarters of public sector petroleum company Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Thakkar Mall in suburban Mumbai and Mangaldas Market in south Mumbai.
