Politicains Fume As MHA Says No Leaders In Detention In Kashmir

SRINAGAR: The political class in Jammu and Kashmir reacted sharply over the MHA report in the parliament that no political leader in Kashmir is in custody. The government responded in black and white to a question asked by Sugata Ray.

Asserting that no leader in Jammu and Kashmir is currently under arrest, the MHA said that 223 people are under detention. The response came from G Kishan Reddy, the Junior Home Minister.

“As on September 11, 223 persons are under detention,” the reply read. “No person is under house arrest in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir.”

The claim was sharply reacted to by the Kashmir political class. Some termed it blatant lie and some clear falsehood. While most of the NC is out of detention, PDP is saying that they are not being permitted to move out of their homes. In fact, its president, Mehbooba Mufti is under Public Safety Act at is being retained at her home.
