Nibras's parents Nazrul Islam and Laila Bilkis floated it on Wednesday for their son's connection in the heinous attack.
They demanded that stern action be adopted against those who misguide the youths including their son.
The statement reads: “We are ashamed and owe an apology. Our son Nibras was an honest, meek and gentle boy. His Uttara friends will also echo our claim. He used to study at North South University from where he went to Monash University, Malaysia, for higher studies. In October, 2015, he returned home and the next year he went missing since February 3. He left a note during the departure in which he sought our blessings in line with assuring us of returning home.
“We were concerned over his disappearance. We had informed it to our intelligence unit as well. Our five-month frantic efforts to find Nibras ended in vain. Even we requested him many times to return home, but all efforts failed to gain any result. Finally on July 2 we noticed that he had been involved in the attack on Holey Artisan Bakery, Gulshan.”
It also said: “We are ashamed, sorry and owe an apology for our son's involvement in the attack. As the parents of Nirbas, we do not know the way to float a condolence message to those who lost their friends and the dears."
"Nibras did not know how to eat by hand. We complain to Allah against those who gave firearms and ammunition to the hands of that boy. We believe that the enforcement agencies will bring those under book for misguiding the youths like Nibras. We again apologise to the whole nation, the countrymen and the other nations.”
