Shehla Rashid's father alleges she took 3 crores to join IAS turned Politician Shah Faisal's party
Abdul Rashid Shohra, the father of JNU scholar Shehla Rashid has alleged that she took 3 crores from a Kashmiri businessman to join IAS topper turned politician Shah Faisal's Jammu and Kashmir People's Movement Party. However, her father was restrained in October by a Munsiff court in Srinagar from entering his own house following a domestic violence complaint by his family members. Thus giving him the motive to defame the daughter.
Reportedly, troubled father on Monday wrote to J&K DGP Dilbag Singh alleging that the money was given by businessman Zahoor Ahmad Shah Vatali for joining the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement. Shehla told The Indian Express when contacted to comment, “We filed an FIR and went to court and filed a case of domestic violence. He is trying to derail the judicial process, he is barred from entering our house. He is the one who claims to have met Zahoor Watali, not me. If he has been in those meetings, he should respond. We have been estranged for the longest time, so we have nothing to do with that. If he had done dealings on my behalf, then he should be explaining this. If he thinks I am involved in anti-national activities, why has he waited this long to make a complaint? Now that he is barred from entering the home, he is making these things up.” Shehla also took to her Twitter handle to discredit the allegations made by her father.
In his letter to Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh on Monday, Shohra also complained about a threat to his life from his own daughter Asma Rashid, wife Zubaida Shohra, and her security guard Sakib Ahmed, and sought personal security and police intervention to gain access to his house.
