Shehla Masood's father seeks security cover

Bhopal: Bhopal police is assessing the threat perception to Sultan Masood, father and chief prosecution witness in the slain RTI activist Shehla Masood murder case, who has demanded a security cover.

"We have asked the concerned police station (Koh-e-Fiza) to assess the threat perception to Sultan and will take a decision on it after studying its report," Bhopal Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Yogesh Choudhary said.

"I had met the state Home Minister few months back demanding security for myself as I am living alone and also fear that those who were involved in the crime would harm me," Sultan said.

"Though a policeman had visited my residence to record my statement on the issue, so far no security has been provided to me," he said.

Shehla was shot dead on 16 August, 2012 when she was sitting in her car just outside her house in the posh Koh-e-Fiza locality of Bhopal.

CBI had so far arrested Zahida, her close confidant Saba Farooqui, and alleged killers — Irfan Ali, Tabish and Shaqib Danger — in the case.
