Mehbooba objects to arrests of suspects by NIA in election season

Srinagar, Dec 28 : Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has raised doubts over the arrests of suspects by declaring them “terrorists on the basis of Sulti bombs, associating with the dreaded IS.”

Taking to twitter Mehbooba wrote, “National security is supreme. But declaring suspects as terrorists on the basis of Sutli bombs, associating with the dreaded IS is premature. It has already devastated their lives and families.

NIA must learn from earlier episodes in which the accused were acquitted after decades.”

In yet another tweet Mehbooba wrote “arrests by NIA in the election season do raise suspicion, especially after the urban Naxal case seems to be falling apart. National security is best served by being just and inclusive, not suspicious of an entire community.” (KNS)
