New Delhi: The daughter of separatist leader Shabbir Shah has topped the CBSE results in Jammu and Kashmir. Sama Shabir, a student of Delhi Public School, Athwajan, has topped among all affiliated schools in the valley by securing 97.8 per cent marks, on Saturday.
Last year, Sama's father and the Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) chief - Shabbir Shah was imprisoned in Tihar Jail by the National Investigation Agency, in a decade-old case of terror funding. The Enforcement Directorate had also filed a charge sheet against Shah, accusing him of being in touch with the Pakistan-based global terrorist- Hafiz Saeed.
The separatist leader in September, 2017 had reportedly confessed to links with hawala operators in Pakistan for laundering money to fuel militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.
