Property was bought by my father, belongs to me: Shah’s wife

Srinagar, March 30, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, as reports claim that India’s Enforcement Directorate (ED) has attached the property of illegally detained senior APHC leader, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, in Rawalpora area of Srinagar, the family of the incarcerated leader has said that they have not received any notice in this regard.

Shabbir Shah’s wife, Dr Bilquees Shah in a statement in Srinagar said that the property, which as per media reports had been attached, belonged to Shah but she was the real owner of the land. “The land in Rawalpora was bought by my father in 1999 following which it was presented to me as a gift by my family in 2005,” she said adding, “The property belongs to me and not Shah.”

“We have provided all documents related to the land to ED in English and Urdu languages. I have constructed the building there with my own income and also took loan of Rs 20 lakhs from bank,” Dr Bilquees Shah said. She further said that they would challenge the action legally in case the property was attached. “So far we have not received even a notice in this regard,” she added.
