Placed Under House Arrest: Mehbooba Mufti

SRINAGAR: Former chief minister and president of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti was placed under house arrest on Sunday in her official residence in Srinagar city.

Suhail Bukhari, spokesman of the PDP told IANS that she was scheduled to go to Chotigam village of Shopian district on Sunday where local Kashmiri Pandit Sunil Kumar was killed on August 16.

Reacting to her house arrest, Mufti said on her Twitter page, “GOI wants to push the plight of Kashmiri pandits under the rug because its their callous policies that’ve led to unfortunate targeted killings of those who chose not to flee. Projecting us mainstream as their enemy is why Ive been placed under house arrest today”.

“My attempts to visit Suneil Kumar’s family at Chotigam today were scuttled by the administration. The same administration claims that locking us up is for our own security while they themselves visit every nook & corner of the Valley,” Mehbooba said.

There has been no official word on Mehbooba Mufti being placed under house arrest.
