‘Siraj involved in illegal biz’

While talking to the media, Farheed Khan, who lost his son, wife and cousin said, “Siraj was into illegal business of animals. He used to import dogs from Polland and sell them here. He was also involved in bird trafficking. If his house is searched , then a lot of such things will be revealed.”

He also said that Siraj used to bury weapons in the ground. If they were dug out, things would be clear.

“He studied in a good school but was always involved in fights. He was also involved in the Peter Gomes murder case,” he said.
