SRINAGAR:  Syed Abdul Wahid, son of  Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin, has dismissed allegations that his migration to Srinagar Medical College was granted after Salahudin had called on intelligence officers in Kashmir to facilitate his entry.   Reacting to former RAW Chief A S Dulat’s revelation during an interview, Syed Wahid said that the allegations were distortion of facts. “Either Dulat is ill informed, or he has run out of his mind,” he said.

Hizb chief’s son said his selection in the Medical College was not facilitated by the government. “I was selected through Common Entrance Test (CET) for MBBS at rank 92 in 2000 purely on the basis of merit,” he said.

“After getting MBBS seat, I got admitted in Jammu Medical College. But, belonging to militant family, I had security concerns at Jammu. During my couple of months there, I was frequently harassed by security and intelligence men, forcing me to abandon the classes and lab work,” Wahid said.

He said his family, worried about his safety, had approached J&K Board of Professional Entrance Examination (JKBOPEE) authorities for my migration, but they feigned helplessness.  “My family then approached the government for help. Sensing the political delicacy of the issue they did help me migrate to Srinagar in exchange of other Jammuite student,” Hizb chief’s son said, adding former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah himself had once acknowledged these facts on a news channel.

“There is not even an iota of truth in the allegations that my father called on J&K government or intelligence officials for something like medical seat,” Wahid said.

Meanwhile, militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen’s spokesman Saleem Hashmi also rejected Dulat’s remarks. “The son of UJC chief appeared in the entrance examination and qualified the test. He was given the seat on merit basis,” he said. He said that Salahuddin has no links either with any government or non-government organisation and nor did he have links with any spy agency.
