In the show-cause notice, the administration had also asked her to explain as to how her licensed weapon was used by her father Nawab Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi in the black buck poaching case.

In her reply to the notice, Soha also demanded the photo copies of documents attached with her application for issuance of the weapon under the Right to Information Act (RTI) and requested the administration give her a chance of personal hearing before reaching a final decision.
