New Delhi: The government is “proud” of the father of terror suspect Saifullah who refused to take his body saying he betrayed his country, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said in parliament today. “Government is proud of Mohammed Sartaj and I am sure the entire House will be proud,” he said.
On Tuesday night, Saifullah was killed in a house on the outskirts of Lucknow after a 12-hour operation to capture him alive. His family later refused to take his body.
Mr Singh today read out his father’s comments in the Lok Sabha, “He said Jo desh ka na Huan, woh mera kya hua…(He couldn’t belong to the country, how can he be my son?)”
