One more hard disk found from Khafeel home

Vicky Nanjappa in Bangalore | August 04, 2007 17:11 IST

The Bangalore police have recovered a second hard disk from the residence of Khafeel Ahmed, the engineer who succumbed to burn injuries in Britain.

Khafeel was the person who drove a flaming vehicle into the Glasgow Airport in the failed terror attack.

Commissioner N Achuth Rao said that the police team had taken into its possession a hard disk from Khafeel's house. Rao said that they had sent the hard disk to the Andhra Pradesh Forensic Sciences Laboratory as it had to be deciphered. He said that once the contents of the hard disk are made known to them, there would be more clarity in the case.

This is the second disk that is being recovered from the house of Khafeel Ahmed after the UK terror plot. The first disk too had been seized and then sent to the AP FSL. The commissioner said that they had not yet got the entire contents which were there on the first hard disk that was seized.

On the dossier that had been sent to the Australian police regarding Dr Haneef Mohammad, Rao refused to comment on the issue. He said he had no knowledge and would not like to comment on the same.

Rao when questioned about the communication with the UK authorities regarding Khafeel said that there was no official word on the death of Khafeel Ahmed as yet. He said that the Bangalore police were yet to receive any sort of communication on this issue.

Meanwhile there was no word from the family members of Khafeel Ahmed. On Saturday morning a swarm of relatives started to pour into the house, but none of them were willing to speak clearly on anything. One of the relatives said that they were there to give moral support to the family.

Khafeel's mother Dr Zakia Ahmed came out just once and pleaded with those standing outside to leave the place. With folded hands she said, "Leave us in peace. We need some peace."
