Mehbooba Mufti claims she is under 'house arrest'
Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti alleged that the administration had claimed a false narrative that normalcy restored in the valley.
She further stated that she is under house arrest and not allowing to visit Kulgam. “Government of India is expressing its concern for rights of Afghanistan people, but it has denied the rights of Kashmiris. I have been placed under house arrest; the administration situation is far from normal, this exposes their fake claim of normalcy”, the PDP chief tweeted.
She has tweeted the image of the locked gate of her house and police guarding outside the gate. For security reasons, we have requested her not to visit Kulgam, " Police has to be required to deploy a lot of security in the area, PDP chief is under Z+ category security. Police have not put her under house arrest, however, police requested not to visit the place today, said police sources. Ms. Mufti's allegation comes as the Jammu and Kashmir police said most restrictions had been eased and internet services have been restored in the region. The restrictions were imposed after the death of separatist hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
Separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, 91, died on Wednesday and was buried hours later near his home in Srinagar amid heavy security to forestall any protests and gatherings at mosques.
