Srinagar, Nov 27 : Jammu and Kashmir Police termed the claim of former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti’s house arrest baseless.
In a tweet police said, PDP leader Ms Mehbooba Mufti is not under house arrest. She was requested to #postpone her visit to Pulwama purely due to security reasons.
Earlier in the day, Iltija Mufti daughter of Mehbooba Mufti said that her mother has been put under house on Friday morning by the authorities.
She said that Mehbooba was going to visit Waheed Para’s residence, who was arrested by the NIA a few days ago
“Is this what you call democracy where you don’t have any right to exercise your freedom of speech and expression. You are being threatened and intimidated for raising voice about anything,” she said.
Pertinently, National Investigation Agency Court on Friday remanded Peoples Democratic Party leader and Youth President Waheed-Ur-Rehman Para to 15 days custody for his alleged connections with Hizbul Mujahideen militant group.
