The man the feds are calling a would-be terrorist lived in Jamaica, Queens, for about a month with distant relatives who apparently had no idea what he was allegedly up to.
The family of Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, in Bangladesh apparently had no idea, either.
Nafis Skyped with them just before he allegedly tried to detonate what he thought was a massive truck bomb outside the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
In reality, the so-called bomb was a fake, given to him by an undercover FBI agent.
In Bangladesh on Thursday, Quazi Ahsanullah Nafis, the suspect's father, cried as he expressed shock that his son had been arrested as a terrorist. The banker said his son told him he wanted to come to America to get a good education to get a better job when he returned home.
Family members said the younger Nafis was gentle but also noted he was a devout Muslim who studied the Koran.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the younger Nafis was working as a restaurant busboy after he transferred from a school in Missouri to a vocational school in New York.
Kelly also acknowledged that a possible co-conspirator had been arrested and could be extradited to New York. That person was not charged in connection with this plot.
