“She is shoot dead in front of her house”

Zahida Parvez’s tell- all diary en­tries ex­pose her para­noid be­hav­iour

India Today - - THE BIG STORY -

Zahida Parvez’s 2011 diary is the sin­gle big­gest piece of ev­i­dence against her. Her record of her re­la­tion­ship with BJP MLA Dhruv Narayan Singh was ex­plicit and graphic. No de­tail was spared in de­scrib­ing her en­coun­ters with him. Zahida made en­tries daily, even on the days she did not meet him. She even recorded some of their sex­ual en­coun­ters, ap­par­ently for “sweet mem­o­ries”, in a CD.

The first page of the diary has her name, writ­ten as “Zahida Dhruv Narayan Singh”. She usu­ally wrote her name as Ar Zahida Parvez, Ar stand­ing for Ar­chi­tect. On the next page, she writes: “Ev­er­last­ing mem­o­ries ded­i­cated to our to­geth­er­ness.”

On Au­gust 16, 2011, she writes in her un­tidy scrawl: “She is shoot dead in front of her house... I was very de­pressed since from the early morn­ing... all of sud­den Ali called up around 11: 15 that Mubarak ho sahib, now we did it in front of her house.” ( This was the day Shehla Ma­sood was shot dead in front of her house in Bhopal.)

Zahida writes that she got the mur­der con­firmed by send­ing an em­ployee to Shehla’s house. “Then I be­came so re­laxed”, but as night falls, she asks her em­ployee and con­fi­dante Saba Fa­rooqui to stay with her. De­scrib­ing their men­tal state, she writes: “Darr se hum dono ki hi fatt rahi thi... raat bhar TV dekhte rahe, aankohn se neend ko­son door thee... saare news­pa­per,

saare chan­nel, sab uski mur­der story se bhare hue the.

( We were very scared... We kept watch­ing TV the en­tire night, sleep was miles away... All news­pa­pers, new chan­nels were filled with her mur­der story).

Then she writes: “I love you Mr Dhruv Narayan Singh and I mean it.”

On April 30, she writes: “He is in Am­s­ter­dom ( Am­s­ter­dam).”

On May 5, she writes: “Dhruv aaj Dubai

mein hein.”

On June 22, she writes: “We had blast­ing sex to­day for one 1/ 2 hour.”

On June 18, she writes: “We met at 7 at of­fice, Un­hone jabar­dast sex bhi kiya.”

There were sev­eral vit­ri­olic ref­er­ences to Shehla. Once, af­ter Dhruv vis­ited Shehla, she writes about Shehla: “K.... ko maar dalungi mein ( I will kill her).”

On June 2, she writes: “Voh Shehla ko bhul nahin pate ya koi aur mil gayi hogi???? Mein aapki di­wani hoon thodi si ja­gah de do

dil mein ( Ei­ther he hasn’t for­got­ten Shehla or there is some­one else. I am mad about you, give me some space in your heart).” In­ves­ti­ga­tors no­ticed that by this time, some fric­tion had ap­peared in her re­la­tion­ship with Singh. She makes an en­try: “We had lit­tle bit sex to­day. We fight like any­thing.”

On July 26, she writes: “At 7: 45 pm, meine

unki aise ki tesi kar di. Khoob royi mein.” It was Singh’s 52nd birth­day. He went to Shehla’s house. Zahida found out and threat­ened him that she would tell Shehla about their re­la­tion­ship.

On July 28, she writes: “Safa­ian de rahe the. Mera kisi se na sam­bandh hai, na tha ( He was giv­ing clar­i­fi­ca­tions... I don’t have a re­la­tion­ship with any­one nor do I in­tend to).”

Then she vis­its a for­tune- teller and writes

what he told her: “15 Novem­ber tak Dhruv

tumhare pass aa jayega. ( Dhruv will be with you by Novem­ber 15)”

On Au­gust 6, she writes: “We met in evening- one hour to­gether. Had blast­ing sex. We had sex in the of­fice.”

There are as many as 60 en­tries de­scrib­ing their pas­sion in de­tail. She recorded

some on her CCTV with­out Singh’s knowl­edge.
