Father of Tsarnaev friend says FBI contacted him

Refused to meet with any agents

The father of a Chechen man fatally shot by the FBI was sought for questioning by the bureau after he arrived in the United States last week to pursue a possible wrongful death lawsuit against the bureau, his lawyers said Tuesday.

FBI agents approached Abdulbaki Todashev at a private residence in Florida after he arrived from Russia to seek answers in the May shooting death of his son, Ibragim Todashev, a friend of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Todashev’s father refused to meet with the agents and has had no contact since.
