DFP serves legal notice to ETV Urdu for telecasting ‘baseless’ news about Shabir Shah

Srinagar: Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has served a legal notice to ETV Urdu TV channel for telecasting baseless news about its incarcerated chief Shabir Ahmad Shah.

The notice issued through advocate Fayaz Ahmad Sodagar said that Shabir Shah, who is presently lodged in Central Jail Tihar, New Delhi is a prominent and frontline pro freedom political leader of Jammu and Kashmir right from 1968, fighting for Right to Self Determination. The ETV Urdu on Dec 3, 2018 at 1900 hours telecasted a caption in Urdu saying “Rs 62.00 lakh was recovered from Shabir Ahmad Shah by Enforcement Directorate.”

The news is false and frivolous and has been deliberately aired. Even the charge sheet filed by ED New Delhi against Shabir Shah does not reveal anywhere that Rs Sixty lakh have been recovered or seized from him.
