Yesterday, Akayed Ullah was apprehended in relation to yesterday’s terroristic attack at the Port Authority bus station. Now, Ullah’s family is claiming they were mistreated by the police investigating the situation.
“We are heartbroken by this attack on our city today and by the allegations being made against our family,” said the family in a statement issued through the Council on American-Islamic Relations of New York (CAIR-NY), according to The Washington Post.
The statement went on to detail the ways the Ullah family was interrogated by the police, characterizing the situation as an outrage.
“Today we have seen our children, as young as 4 years old, held out in the cold, detained as their parents were questioned … One teenage relative was pulled out of high school classes and interrogated without a lawyer, without his parents. These are not the actions that we expect from our justice system,” the statement continues.
