In occupied Kashmir, member of the so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdul Rasheed has demanded of the puppet authorities to investigate wealth sources of pro-India politicians. According to media sources, Engineer Abdul Rasheed addressing a press conference in Srinagar said that some Indian television channels were busy in character assassination of people of Kashmir. Disclosing his assets, he urged the puppet Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti to direct the Crime Investigation Department (CID) and Crime Branch of the territory to investigate the source of wealth of every pro-India politician. “I have already disclosed what assets I had before becoming the member of Kashmir Assembly,” he said. “While watching television last night, I was shocked to find a television channel claiming that I have raised huge properties. Though the Indian television channels stand already discredited in Kashmir, however, it was hard to imagine that these so-called journalists will stoop so low,” he said. “Anybody interested can get the details about my property verified and probed by the agencies from Crime Branch to NIA. I will approach Crime Branch with the request to investigate and probe my property so that it becomes an example and paves a way for the investigation into the properties of police officers, bureaucrats and pro-India political leaders,” he said. “Indian agencies should spare some time from maligning those speaking truth, and investigate those who have raised huge properties and bungalows from Karnah to Dubai and UK to Switzerland,” he said. Engineer Rasheed said, “Government of India is trying to malign those Kashmiri leaders who speak truth. But let it be clear to New Delhi that it cannot achieve anything by such tactics. It has neither succeeded to stop Kashmiris from demanding right to self-determination in the past nor will succeed in future by resorting to any kind of pressure on the leadership,” he said.
