Jammu:Alleging that facing threat from his daughter Shehla Rashid, ex student of and member of 'Tukde Tukde' Gang, father on Monday lodged a complaint with the Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police.
Mr Shora said that he has approached the office of DGP, Jammu and Kashmir Police with a written complaint that he is facing death threats from his own daughter.
Talking to reporters here this evening outside Press Club of Jammu, Mr Shora said that he has sought security cover from the DGP.He also claimed that is being supported by his elder daughter Asma Rashid, his wife and one of the security guards, Sakib Ahmad.
 
In a letter addressed to the DGP, Abdul Rashid also informed that soon after Shehla Rashid jumped into politics her threat perception increased."Just two months before the arrest of in Terror Funding Case under UAPA, I was called by him and Engineer Rasheed (Ex-MLA) at Watali's residence at Sanat Nagar, Srinagar in June 2017," he claimed adding that at that time Shehla was in the last semester of her Ph.D in Sociology.
 
"After we met, they revealed to me that the trailer of launch of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples's Movement party and urged me to extend cooperation to merge Shehla Rashid into their game plan, at that point of time Shah Faesal was in USA on education leave under the patronage of Feroze Peerzada presently, President JKPM party and Zahoor Watali," he alleged.
 
They offered me during the meeting Rs 3 crores for Shehla to join them, he said and added that as the money was being pumped from illegal channels and shall be used for unlawful activities, he refused and asked his daughter to not indulge in any such transactions.
 
"Despite my resistance I found my wife Zubeida Shora and elder daughter to be supportive of Shehla and becoming party to this deal alongwith one more person Sakib Ahmad, who was introduced to me as her personal security man by Shehla as he used to carry a pistol with him," he said.
 
After a week when Shehla came to Srinagar from Delhi she confirmed to me that she has got transferred the referred amount  at Delhi in cash  and there is no need for me to disclose anything regarding this transaction and my meeting with Rasheed Engineer and Zahoor Watali with anybody, as  this can put  my life in danger. She also told me that she has accepted the money and much more is about to come in future and so I need to shut up my mouth. As a concerned father  I strongly objected  to my daughters decision for joining these notorious  people as I felt the money coming will be used for unlawful activities.
 
"I have requested to the DGP to ensure my personal security and kindly direct the concerned police station to extend support to me in getting back to my house as per court order," he said and requested request to order investigations into the conduct of Sakib and his associates, bank details of Shehla Rashid, Asma Rashid and Zubeida and property acquired by them at New Delhi, their email accounts, mysterious financial  dealing with Feroze Peerzada, Zahoor Watali and Rashid Engineer and other notorious activities being done in the name of Empowerment of Women and Social Justice NGO.(UNI)
