A son of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi was arrested Saturday for possession of hashish in a western suburb of Cairo, media reported.

In a car with tinted windows, Abdullah, Morsi's youngest son, was arrested along with another person smoking hashish cigarettes, Xinhua reported citing official news agency MENA as quoting an interior ministry source.

Abdullah confessed his possession of the drug and the two persons were referred to the prosecution for further investigations.

Meanwhile, Morsi's elder son Ousama posted on his Twitter account that his brother was kidnapped by the police and the charges were fabricated.

"The incident of kidnapping and then arresting Abdullah Morsi is to defame the honest people," Ousama said, noting the charges were very funny and absurd.
