SRINAGAR — Former IAS topper Shah Faesal on Tuesday clarified that he has nothing to do with the family dispute of Shehla Rashid and his name is being dragged into family dispute of a former colleague, adding that he will cooperate with the investigating agencies, if required.

While reacting to the allegations leveled by the Shehla’s father, Shah faesal in a series of tweets said, “As far as my name has been dragged into the family dispute of a former colleague, I want to make it clear that I have neither met nor consulted any of the terror accused persons, directly or indirectly, not to speak of seeking their support or benefitting from them.”

He said, “In the US also, in 2018, I have been very careful with my actions and utterances and never said anything prejudicial to the security and integrity of the country. Having been in the IAS, I am fully aware of the redlines and am very clear about where I stand.”

“While I know the perils of public life, I feel extremely sad to see my name being dragged into something with which I am not even remotely associated. I will be glad to go before @JKP NIA CBI ED and assist in the investigation, if required,” reads his another tweet.

The controversy came after the father of Shehla Rashid, a resident of Chanapora Srinagar, had filed a complaint with the DGP JK in Jammu.

Rashid, who is opposing Shehla joining politics, had said that just two months before the arrest of Zahoor Watali in militant funding case under UAPA, he was called by Zahoor Watali and Rashid Engineer ex-MLA at Watali, residence at Sanathnagar, Srinagar in June 2017 to allow her daughter to join Jammu Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM), which was founded by Shah faesal.
