Confirming his death, Ruwa Shah, the daughter of Shah tweeted: “Abu breathed his last at AIIMS, New Delhi. As a prisoner.”

The pinned tweet of Ruwa Shah about her father that she had tagged to MHA and PMO reads: “My incarcerated father has been diagnosed of acute renal cancer which has metastasis and has spread to his other body parts, including his bones. It is my whole family’s request to please allow us to see him and consider his bail application on health grounds.”
