The mother of Indian Mujahideen operative Yasin Bhatkal has expressed apprehension that her son may be killed in a fake encounter that may be staged as his attempt to escape from prison.

Rehana Siddibappa said that during a visit to Cherlapally prison in Hyderabad earlier this year, her son had expressed fears that he would be killed in a fake jailbreak.

The 32-year-old, who has been accused of carrying out a series of blasts in the country and was arrested in 2013 near the India-Nepal border, was in the news recently over a purported telephone conversation with his wife Zahida in which he allegedly spoke of an escape plan with the help of Islamic State.

“My son fears that the police will kill him in a staged encounter,’’ Rehana Siddibapa said at a press conference in Bhatkal. Asked how her son could reach out to IS leaders for their help to escape, she said: “Through false reports they are readying the ground for a fake encounter.” Yasin had told her that security agencies would kill him because they had failed to find evidence to prove his involvement in the blasts, she claimed.

She also referred to the killing of IM member and her son’s associate Qateel Siddiqui in Pune’s Yerawada prison in July 2012 and the alleged fake encounter in which five “SIMI members” were killed in Hyderabad recently.

“As a mother she fears for his life. When she met him in prison he told her he was going to be killed. He also told her he was innocent,’’ Yasin’s uncle Yakub Siddibappa said. Yasin is awaiting trial in over half-a-dozen blasts involving the IM across India between 2006-2013.

    Guest! We all know very well about role of police and a deep conspiracy developed by like you peoples to kill the innocent! How can you say that parents can't raise the voice regarding his/her son! The case is already in court, and honorable court will decide whether he is innocent or criminal. RSS peoples only hate to Muslims but don't worry you guys are not going to win any things because your pillar of home is standing on blood of innocent peoples specially Muslims of India. Try to believe in consution and follow the rule, then you guys can see a lot of criminal, terrorist are belong to RSS but still Government watching the match and encourage to those criminals to spread hate in society. Stupid guest please open your eyes and see whats wrong & right?

        When parent start fearing if their offspring may be killing or helping kill innocents or even hurt the nation they live in, perhaps chances of true peace and efforts to prevent wrongs form building against the safety and security of all will lead to reduction of counter measure type intervention by authorities. Do such parents have courage, commitment and a will to live for the nation and for well being of all? Cheap and superficial "journalists" will write anything and care not for any balance in their own deeds.

            If this guy is innocent then why was he absconding for so many years under fake ideny? Its natural every mom considers her son to be innocent. Nationalist whose comments are posted should know that the minorities are more safe in our country than our neighboring countries. There minorities are on the verge of extinction and here they are increasing in numbers and % also. Similar position exists in almost all Muslim dominant countries. Look at the world comparatively you will not find ideal conditions any where. Muslims image is already at stake in the world.
