Reacting to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) notice regarding attachment of the house of its incarcerated chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah the Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) today said, "To issue a notice of attachment of the house of Shabir Shah is nothing but an inhuman act," a DFP spokesman said in a statement.
"The land, three kanal, on which the house is build in Rawalpora area was actually purchased by the father-in-law of Shabir Shah in 1999 in the name of his two younger daughters who later gifted 1.5 kanal each to the two daughters of Shabir Shah in 2005.
Later Shabir Shah's wife Dr Bilquies Shah constructed the house after 2006 by acquiring a loan of Rs 20 lakh from J&K Bank.
All these documents, both revenue as well as bank, have already been produced to ED. English translation of the Revenue documents was also produced to ED so that they can understand it correctly," the statement stated.
"Shabir Shah's wife and her sisters also attended thesummons of ED from time to time. Her father who is in his late 80's also sentwritten details to ED as he was not in a position to travel to Delhi due to hisillness," the statement added.
