Mangaluru: Father of arrested terror suspect dies of heart attack in hospital

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru

Mangaluru, Sep 23: Father of one of the suspected terrorists, who had been arrested recently in Shivamogga, passed away at a hospital here on Friday, September 23 in the evening.

The deceased is identified as Muneer Ahmed (57), father of Maaz Muneer Ahmed (22) who had been arrested by the police on charges of terror. The deceased was admitted to Father Muller Hospital after suffering a heart attack, sources said.

Muneer Ahmed was the son of former member of Thirthahalli municipal council, Congress leader, late Sabhan Saheb. Family sources said that the mortal remains of Muneer Ahmed will be brought to Thirthahalli tonight.

Though Muneer Ahmed's residence is at Soppugudde, near Thirthahalli fish market, he had been staying in another house. Muneer Ahmed had reportedly settled in Mangaluru to educate his children and was a wholesale fish trader in Thirthahalli from where he hailed and continued his business in Mangaluru also.

“Muneer suffered due to high blood pressure two years ago when son Maaz was arrested on charges of writing graffiti on the walls in Mangaluru. Two stents were inserted for his heart subsequent to it. He was upset and worried when his son was arrested again recently on suspected links with  terrorists,” his family sources said. 

Maaz, one of the suspected terrorists arrested in Shivamogga was allegedly a member of the ISIS-inspired Al-Hind outfit which had planned to kill Hindu leaders and pro-Hindu officials in the state, a preliminary inquiry by the investigating agencies revealed.

The case has now been taken over by the NIA.

Mortal remains of Muneer Ahmed were brought to Brahmavar late night on Friday September 23 for public viewing.

As per the sources, one of the close relatives of the family is residing in Honnala village here. The mortal remains were kept for an hour for public viewing. Later on, the family members took the mortal remains to Thirthahalli.

    Rest in peace Muneer Ahmed. Some souls are like that. Whatever good upbringing they get, they will only go in the wrong way. See what sacrifices the father did for children's education...even shifted to mangalore. The stupid son destroyed all his efforts and took his life too. Do you need the please the Almighty this way?
