SRINAGAR — Father of former JNU student leader and activist Shehla Rashid’s father Abdul Rashid Shora has alleged that he is facing threats to his life from his daughter.

Rashid, a resident of Chanapora Srinagar, has filed a complaint with the DGP J&K in a Jammu police station.

“I am under a constant threat of my life by my daughter Shehla Rashid Shora whose is supported by the elder daughter and my wife as well as her security guard namely Saqib Ahmad,” Rashid alleges in the complaint to DGP J&K, Dilbagh Singh.

Rashid, who says that he was forced to shift to Jammu for safety of his life, said that the threat perception started in 2017 when Shehla Rashid jumped all of a sudden into Kashmir politics.

Rashid, who was opposing Shehla joining politics, said that just two months before the arrest of Zahoor Watali in terror funding case under UAPA, he was called by Zahoor Watali and Rashid Engineer ex-MLA at Watali residence at Sanat Nagar, Srinagar in June 2017 to allow her daughter to join politics.

“The plot of launch of JKPM was revealed to me by these persons and they offered me Rs. 3 crore to join these people. I felt the money is coming from illegal channels and shall be used for unlawful activities; I didn’t take the money and asked my daughter to not indulge in such transactions with these people,” he alleges in the letter.

The father says that his wife, elder daughter and a person namely Sakib, whom Shehla introduced as her personal security guard, supported her, despite my disapproval.

“However, Shehla accepted to have taken the amount in Delhi, and I should not disclose my meetings with Watali and Er Rashid. I objected to her decision for joining these notorious people. I strongly believe that anti-national activities are going on in my house. My daughter, wife and Sakib Ahmad (who carries a pistol with him and lately threatened me) are the characters,” he mentions in the complaint.

He says that Shehla and her mother hatched a conspiracy to throw me out of the house by filing a complaint against me in domestic violence case in a local court.

“Despite the order from court to stay in my house, police failed to implement the court order and restore me in my house. I went to my house myself with the court order wherein I was threatened by Sakib Ahmad and his armed associates. Fearing for my life, I shifted to Jammu for safety,” he said.

He had appealed the DGP to intervene and investigate into the matter, bank details of Shehla and his wife and daughter and Sakib.

“Property acquired by them in New Delhi, their email accounts and their mysterious financial dealings with Feroze Peerzada, Zahoor Watali and Er Rashid and the notorious activities done by them in the name of Empowerment of Woman and Social Justice NGO must be probed,” he mentions in the letter.
