Mehbooba Mufti claims she is under house arrest again


Srinagar: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday claimed that she has been put under house arrest again as she had planned to visit Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief also posted a picture of a security forces vehicle allegedly blocking the main gate of her residence on Gupkar road.

"Locked up in my house today yet again for attempting to visit the village in Tral allegedly ransacked by the army. This is the real picture of Kashmir that visiting dignitaries must be shown instead of GOIs sanitised & guided picnic tours," Mufti tweeted.

Mufti had on Tuesday alleged that Army personnel had thrashed a family in Tral town of Pulwama and injured a female member. Mufti said she was going to meet the family on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Mufti had tweeted: "Army from Yagwani camp in Tral ransacked homes & ruthlessly thrashed a family last night. The daughter owing to her serious injuries was admitted to the hospital. Not the first time that civilians from this village have been beaten up by the army in this area.

This is the second time in three weeks the PDP chief has claimed to be in "house detention".

Meanwhile, Mufti's close confident Najmu Saqib, told media that she was not allowed to undertake a visit to the Seer area of Trial. A PDP spokesman said the district administration did not allow her and policemen from police station Ram Munshibagh to lock the main gate of her residence and placed a banker on the main gate.

A police official however quoted as saying that Mufti was not allowed to visit Tral in view of her own security. Early this month, Mehbooba had alleged that she was stopped from going to Kulgam to meet family members and her party workers.

Mehbooba Mufti was detained for nearly 14 months starting August 2019, after the government controversially scrapped Article 370, and charged under the notorious Public Safety Act (PSA) - a stringent law that allows detention and multiple extensions without trial.
