KALABURAGI : Weeks after a flat where his wife is residing was raided by the National Investigation Agency, Deputy Commissioner (Commercial Taxes) Irshad Khan on Saturday held a press conference and said that neither he nor his wife were involved in the case of ‘love jihad’ in which a 25-year-old Hindu girl from Kochi was allegedly convinced to convert to Islam for marriage.

Khan admitted that a team of officials had raided his wife’s flat at Diamond District in Bengaluru and had questioned her at length before seizing several laptops and 12 mobile phones from her residence. 
His wife works in Bengaluru. He said on Saturday that the NIA team had questioned his wife on the suspicion that she had sheltered the girl for a fortnight in her house. He also said there were some allegations that his wife used to instigate women to convert to Islam.

Denying these outright, Khan said both he and his wife will fully co-operate with the NIA, which is investigating the case. “It is totally wrong that the girl was hidden in my wife’s flat before being smuggled to Saudi Arabia and Syria,” he said.
