“This is murder of democracy and murder of free expression. How can a common man be safe here when even the movement of a legislator who is the representative of the people is restricted? I feel pity on the establishment which is choking the voice of the people in Kashmir,” this was stated by PDP legislator from South Kashmir’s Pulwama Assembly constituency who was placed under house arrest after he intended to visit to meet the families of the Kakpora victims on Wednesday.
Two civilians and a militant were killed after forces fired upon protesters after the culmination of the encounter in Kakpora town of Pulwama district sparking shutdown and large scale protests across Kashmir.
PDP legislator from the constituency Muhammad Khalil Bandh told CNS that he had planned to visit the bereaved families but was not allowed to venture out from his official Tulsi Bagh residence. “It is sad that police have been restricting the movement of even representatives of people. If this is the case then God only knows what people would have been facing,” Bandh said.
