New Delhi: Former JNU student and JNU leader Shehla Rashid’s father Abdul Rashid Shora wrote a three-page letter to J&K DGP Dilbagh Singh, accusing Shehla, her mother, her sister, and her security guard of giving him life threat.
He demanded a probe into her NGOs, accusing her of having taken a big amount of cash for joining politics.
“She had taken 3 crores to join politics in Kashmir from (former MLA) Engineer Rashid and (businessman) Zahoor Watali (both of whom were arrested last year by the National Investigation Agency for their alleged involvement in terror funding case),” claimed Shora.
Later, Shehla disproved all the allegations and termed her father’s statement “absolutely disgusting and baseless”.
Tweeting a response against her father’s allegations, she wrote – “Many of you must have come across a video of my biological father making wild allegations against me and my mum and sis. To keep it short and straight, he’s a wife-beater and an abusive, depraved man. We finally decided to act against him, and this stunt is a reaction to that.”
Shehla joined politics and became a founding member of the political movement which was floated by politician Shah Faesal, the IAS topper turned politician. Later, she announced “dissociation with the electoral mainstream in Kashmir” last year.
