Geelani is innocent: Teacher's brother

Brother of Abdul Rehman Geelani, who has confessed to his links with militants who attacked Parliament on December 13, on Sunday alleged that the Delhi-based academic was 'falsely implicated' in the case and whereabouts of four members of his family were not known.

Immediately after Delhi Police Commissioner Ajai Raj Sharma's press conference in New Delhi giving details of the breakthrough in the case, Abdul Rahim Geelani told reporters at his Tawheedgunj residence in Baramulla (in Jammu and Kashmir) that his brother was 'innocent' and falsely implicated by police in the case.

"We have no news about Geelani's wife, two children and a brother who were staying with him in New Delhi," Rahim said.

He said efforts to contact them did not succeed and "We are worried about their fate."

Principal of the Zakir Hussain College, where Geelani teaches, on Sunday night said he did not believe the lecturer could be involved in the attack.

"I think he is a simple man who is only interested in learning and teaching," Riaz Omar told Star News.
