Bengaluru: Amid the furore over the Haveri moral policing case, now the mother of one of the accused, Mohammed Saif, Kairunisa has claimed that her son is innocent.
While Mohammed Saif is undergoing treatment at Haveri district hospital, his mother has claimed that he was innocent. She claimed that her son was called by his friends after the crime was committed.
“My son has not the slightest idea of what has happened to him. My son has been implicated in this case. He didn't do anything, just look at what's going on here. My son is not involved in such a case. The boys called my son,” she said, adding, “My son is not someone who misbehaves with girls. My son met with a bike accident and injured his leg, after which he has been admitted to the hospital. It has been three days since he was brought to Haveri district hospital.”
“We are a family that makes a living by selling vegetables. My son had not gone to work on the day of the incident. I don't know about the others, but my son isn't involved,” she added.
