He was called. At the time Shehla was in the final semester of her PhD in Sociology, when we met she revealed to me the launch of the JKPM party and urged me to cooperate to include Shehla Rashid in the scheme.

Rashid, who says that he was forced to shift to Jammu for safety of his life, said that the threat perception started in 2017 when Shela Rashid jumped all of a sudden into Kashmir politics.

“The plot of launch of JKPM was revealed to me by these persons and they offered me Rs 3 crore to join these people. I felt the money is coming for illegal channels and shall be used for unlawful activities; I didn’t take the money and asked my daughter to not indulge in such transactions with these people,” he alleges in the letter.

“However, Shehla accepted to have taken the amount in Delhi, and I should not disclose my meetings with Vatali and Er Rashid. I objected to her decision for joining these notorious people. I strongly believe that anti-national activities are going on in my house. My daughter, wife and Sakib Ahmad (who carries a pistol with him and lately threatened me) are the characters,” he mentions in the complaint.

He says that Shehla and her mother hatched a conspiracy to throw me out of the house by filing a complaint against me in domestic violence in a local court.

“Despite the court order from to stay in my house, police failed to implement the court order and restore me in my house. I went to my house myself with the court order wherein I was threatened by life by Sakib Ahmad and his armed associates. Fearing for my life, I shifted to Jammu for safety,” he said.
