Sources say that Zarrar Siddibapa is seeking an appointment with the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to confirm whether the arrested person is his son Yasin.
An official further said,"the NIA's visit is to corroborate whether what Yasin is saying to the investigation officers is true or not."
Meanwhile, Zaraar is reported to be saying that if the photographs shown on television are correct, then it is him.
Zaraar is also said to have contacted Bangalore lawyer Akmal Rizwi, who is also the state secretary of the Association for Protection of Civil Rights, to take up his son's case. However, Rizvi said that Yasin, who has been booked with criminal charges in eight states, would require as many lawyers.
