The Enforcement Directorate has questioned the wife of arrested Democratic Freedom Party chief Shabir Ahmad Shah in New Delhi when she had gone to meet her husband and has summoned her to bring the property statement to ED office on August 11.

Bilquees Shah, wife of Shabir Shah, told local news agency KNS that on Saturday she flew to New Delhi to meet her husband at ED office. “I was questioned by ED officials for about four hours. The ED officials took a written statement from me about my life, marriage, studies and my profession,” said Bilquees Shah, who is a medical doctor.

“Initially, I did not accept the ED officials for questioning me while I was meeting my husband, but they compelled me for replying to their questions,” she said, adding, that she told them she was a doctor.

“But I was shocked when they asked that that my name figures in the fabricated money laundering case,” she said, adding, the ED officials gave her a summon and asked her to be present in ED office in New Delhi on August 11 to bring her property statements along.

“I told them that being a medical doctor and a mother, it cannot be possible for me to come to ED office,” she said.

Shah was arrested by ED on July 24 and is presently in New Delhi with ED sleuths.
