We feel cheated in the name of rehabilitation: Shah's wife

Srinagar, Mar 24 , 2013 (PTI)

In a new twist to the Delhi terror plot case, the wife of suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militant Syed Liyaqat Shah has claimed that they came to Gorakhpur in a security vehicle from the Nepal border.

"Once we crossed the Nepal Border, a security vehicle was waiting for us and we boarded into that vehicle and reached Gorakhpur where my husband (Liyaqat) was asked to de-board and accompany the sleuths," Aktar-u-Nisa, Shah's second wife, said after reaching her husband's residence in Kupwara in north Kashmir.

Nisa said they had breakfast at some security camp near Gorakhpur with the security personnel, who were very cordial with the couple.

Shah's first wife, Amina Banoo, had submitted an application in police station Kupwara in 2011 under Rehabilitation Policy for ex-militants for the return of her husband from Pakistan occupied Kashmir.


Aktar-u-Nisa told PTI that Delhi Police enacted a drama to mislead the nation that Shah was planning to carry out terror strikes in the country.

"Who will want to come back (under the rehabilitation policy) if this is what the police will do upon their return?" she asked.

The woman said she rued the decision to coming back with her husband as the police is spreading lies and falsehood against Shah.

"We have been cheated in the name of rehabilitation... I hope there is some way that I can go back (to Pakistan)," she added.
