“One who indulges in anti-national activities can’t be my son,” explained Sartaj, dad of Saifullah, who was shot dead by police near the Indian city of Lucknow, a day after the terror strike.

Saifullah, who was said to be in his 20s, was allegedly part of a newly-formed ISIS cell in Kanpur — which was made up of at least nine members, including two of his cousins, NDTV reports.
