Following the alleged custodial killing of a youth in Srinagar, the Jammu and Kashmir former chief minister and PDP president said that Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that Delhi’s “repressive” approach leaves young educated men vulnerable who are forced to take up arms.
“Innocent men hauled up from their homes for interrogation return home only in coffins now. GoI’s repressive approach leaves young educated men vulnerable who are forced to take up arms. Stop using Kashmir to exhibit your sick chauvinistic nationalism. We have suffered enough (sic),” Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.
Earlier police said that in pursuance of militancy case investigation, one suspect Rizwan Pandit, a resident of Awantipora in south Kashmir, was in police custody.
The said Pandit died in police custody. In this matter while following the procedure laid down in section 176 of crpc a magisterial inquiry is underway.
