Slain RTI activist`s father ‘expects no justice`

RTI activist Shehla was found shot dead inside her car in front of her house in the Koh-e-Fiza locality here on August 16.



Bhopal: Sultan Masood, the father of
murdered RTI activist Shehla Masood, claimed here on Thursday that
he did not expect justice for his daughter and as a person
belonging to the "lower-middle class" he was powerless to
demand an effective probe.

He also alleged that in January this year, Shehla had
filed a complaint with the Lokayukta that she feared threat to
her life from IPS officer Pawan Shrivastava.

The way the police were handling the investigations
created suspicion about their sincerity, he accused.

"We belong to lower middle-class and lack the power to
purchase or to influence a top politician or an official,"
Sultan accused while addressing reporters at his residence.

"We expect no justice," he said.
Sultan, a retired government officer, said he wanted a
CBI inquiry.

After the murder, reports appeared in the local media
that it could be a suicide, he pointed out, and expressed
suspicion that these reports could be based on the information
given by the police. His daughter could not have taken her own
life, he asserted.

No weapon was found on the spot, yet media speculated
about it being a suicide, he said, adding that she had booked
tickets for going to the United States in the first week of
September. Suicide, against this background, was improbable.

Also, Islam considers it utterly wrong to take one`s own
life, that too in the holy month of Ramadan, he said.
Shehla was found shot dead inside her car in front of her
house in the Koh-e-Fiza locality here on August 16.
