Terror link: Two goof-ups

Here are the two goof-ups:

Mumbai: "I thank Allah and my lawyer and my family because of whom I am out today," was the only sentence the 23-year-old Mohammad Abdul Samad Zarar uttered in his first press conference on Tuesday, two days after he was released from Arthur Road jail after getting bail.

His lawyer Mubin Solkar said at the press conference that Samad was made an accused in an illegal arms case of 2009. He categorically denied any link with the February 13 German Bakery blast in which 17 were killed.

"He has no role in the blast case and was never picked up by ATS to probe involvement in the case. He has two siblings, Mohammad Ahmed and Mariya. He doesn't know anyone named Bhatkal," said Solkar and added that he had no relation with Yasin Bhatkal, alleged to be a close associate and relative of Indian Mujahideen (IM) founder Riyaz Bhatkal.
