Abdul Rashid Shora, the estranged father of student activist Shehla Rashid, on Monday levelled serious allegations against her and claimed threat to his life from her. Her father also accused Shehla Rashid of having taken a huge amount of money for joining politics in Kashmir, a charge denied by her. Her father claimed that Shehla Rashid was involved in 'anti-national activities' and sought a probe into her NGO.
In response, Shehla Rashid termed her father's statement "absolutely disgusting and baseless" and said this was his the reaction after a court barred him entry into their Srinagar house on November 17 in response to a complaint filed by the family against him under domestic violence. Shehla Rashid also went to call her father a "wife-beater".
