Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti leader has said that he was not allowed to meet the father of Athar Wani, who was killed in the disputed Lawaypora encounter in December last year.
A party spokesman said that Mehbooba Mufti had sought permission to meet Mushtaq Ahmad Wani, the father of the deceased Athar Wani in Pulwama.
According to the spokesperson, “Despite being asked for permission, a police car was parked at the gate here and security forces surrounded the way.”
Mehbooba Mufti posted a video of about 2 minutes on Twitter, writing, “House arrest as usual. I was placed under house arrest when I allegedly asked to allow the family of Athar, who was killed in a fake encounter. When Athar’s father asked for the body of his son, UAPA was imposed on him. These are the same ‘normal conditions’ that the Indian government wants to show to the European Union delegation coming to Kashmir.”
In this video, Mehbooba Mufti is asking security officials why their gate has been closed? A person standing there said that it was done for security reasons. Mehbooba is constantly asking that she show the order on the basis of which she has been closed. Security officials remain silent on this. Later Mehbooba said that she should be let go without protection.
Mufti said that there is rule of repression and terror in Kashmir.
Mufti said, “This is the real and ugly truth which the Indian government wants to hide from the rest of the country.” A 16-year-old boy was killed and then buried in a hurry. His family was not even given a chance to perform his last rites. “
Currently, the police has not issued any statement regarding the arrest or detention of Mehbooba Mufti.
