Here is the details of some terror suspect who have been arrested after the recent Lucknow incident, as compiled by ‘The Indian Express’:

FAKR-E-ALAM, Lakhna Maheshwari Mohal Locality, Etawah

Fakr-E-Alam stayed with sister, Air Force official brother-in-law in Chandigarh. He was picked up with his brother Faiz Alam, 23, by the Uttar Pradesh Anti Terrorism Sqauad (ATS) from their home in Lakhna’s Maheshwari Mohal, about 35 km from Etawah couple of days back. Fakr-E-Alam is the youngest of 10 brothers and sisters. The brothers have eight sisters, out of whom three of them are married, the five stitch clothes, and also run a beauty parlour in a small room in their house to add to their father’s income.

Their father Babu Khan, 70, goes in search work every day. There are days he gets little work — when people permit him to sit in their shops as a guard — but on most days his daughters are the “men of the family”.

Fakr-e-Alam, was a tudent of B.Tech (Mechanical) in CHC College, Chandigarh. Khan said his son was a bright student from childhood. Faiz, who has been detained, was preparing to take the civil service examination in Delhi after completing his postgraduation in Geography from Agra.

A neighbour, Pinky Kumari, called the brothers “shy”.

SYED MIR HUSSAIN, ALIAS HAMZA, Gursahaiganj, Kannauj

Son of Syed Ahsan Hassan, a teacher in Gursahaiganj area of Kannauj district, Mir Hussain had left home on February 5 and met Atif Muzaffar, his favourite cousin, in Lucknow.For over a month, the 20-year old had stayed with Atif, Saifullah and Danish at Lucknow’s Haji Colony, where the ATS carried out the operation on Tuesday. Mir and Atif were held in Madhya Pradesh.

As per the police , who questioned him, Mir was close to his cousins, especially Atif. He had left for Aligarh to join a coaching for engineering exams, but officials said he never joined it.

IMRAN, DANISH, FAIZAL, Tad Bagiya, Kanpur

Not very far from Saifullah’s house in Tad Bagiya area of Kanpur, is the house of Imran, Danish and Faizal — brothers and three suspects. Their father, Naseem Ahmed, who is a retired school teacher, has locked himself in the house after speaking briefly to mediapersons briefly.

“Humko lagta hai total sachai se, imandari se inquiry ho jaye inki (I think there should be a fair and honest probe),” Naseem said, while claiming his sons — in their early 20s — are innocent. Though Saifullah is his brother’s son, Naseem said he has nothing to do with him.

He, however, admitted that like Saifullah, even Danish had run away from home after he was scolded for studies. “Bhag gaya to hum logon ne koi takaja nahi di (We did not pay much attention after he ran from home),” he said while claiming that his sons were “sidhe sadhe ladke”.

Local people said while Imran — who is married — was working in a private company in Unnao’s Banthar and used to be busy with laptops and mobiles, Danish had left his studies and Faizal was pursuing a professional course.

ATIF MUZAFFAR, Kanpur Development Authority Colony

Atif Muzaffar’s residence is at a distance of about 8 km from Naseem’s house, another suspect. His house is a picture of prosperity when compared to the other suspects.

In his early 20s Atif has a elder brother and four sisters. His late father, M H Muzaffar, owned a leather factory. Atif had done his Class X studies in Aligarh and later joined AMU to pursue a course in footwear design. Four years ago, his father died, after which, he left studies.

Like Danish and Saifullah, Atif too ran away from home two-and-a-half months ago. “He told me there are no jobs even after doing a footwear design course from AMU three years ago. I tried to convince him but he did not listen. He told me he was leaving for Delhi. I did not speak to him,” Atif’s mother was quoted as saying by the paper.

Refusing to share her name, she said that in the last two months, Atif had tried to call her from different phone numbers. “Maine jawab nahi diya sochke ki wapas aa jayega jab lagega ki amma naraz hai (I did not respond thinking he would return reaslising that his mother is angry),” she said, adding that she fears for her two daughters, who are yet to get married. “Do ki shadi ho gayi hai, ek BA kar rahi hai, aur ek abhi Class X mein hai (Two daughters are married, one is pursuing BA and another is in Class X),” she told the paper.
