Disconcerted by the rumours, Shabir Shah’s wife, Dr Bilquees Shah went to Tihar Jail to see her husband but wasn’t allowed to meet him.

However, the DIG Tihar prison has rubbished the rumours of assault on Shah. Urging people to be cautious against ‘fake news’, he has stated that Shah is absolutely ‘fit and fine’, as well as the other J&K and Pakistani prisoners.

Altaf Shah’s daughter Ruwa Shah took to Twitter to scotch the rumours about the assault on Shabir Shah.

She stated that her father Altaf Shah was injured in an accident but because of the similar surnames, the rumours of Shabir Shah picked up steam.
