‘The Ahmeds are under a siege by the media’

B.T. Venkatesh, the lawyer for the parents of Kafeel Ahmed and Sabeel Ahmed, the Bangalore brothers arrested in Britain in connection with the failed attack on Glasgow Airport, was on NDTV last night.

“My clients have virtually been imprisoned by the media. There are dozens of reporters and photographers outside their home. They cannot go out to even fetch some milk, nor can any visitor come in to meet them.

“They are under a seige by the media.

“The television cameras are fixed on the rooms of their house. When somebody drew the curtain to change her clothes, she was aghast to see a video camera prying in on her. We will initiate legal action against any media house which airs such pictures.”
