Mehbooba Mufti, daughter allegedly put under house arrest
SRINAGAR [Maha Media]: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Friday claimed that she and her daughter, Iltija Mufti, were put under house arrest and not allowed to visit the Pulwama residence of party leader Waheed Parra, who was arrested by the NIA earlier this week.
The former chief minister said that for the last two days, she has not been allowed to console the family of Parra, who was arrested on baseless charges.
I've been illegally detained yet again. Since two days, J&K admin has refused to allow me to visit @parawahid's family in Pulwama. BJP Ministers & their puppets are allowed to move around in every corner of Kashmir but security is a problem only in my case, Mehbooba said in a tweet.
She said her daughter has also been put under the house arrest.
Their cruelty knows no bounds. Waheed was arrested on baseless charges & I am not allowed to even console his family. Even my daughter Iltija has been placed under house arrest because she also wanted to visit Waheed's family, she said.
Waheed is the youth wing president of PDP's Jammu and Kashmir unit.
The PDP leader said that she will hold a press conference at 3:30 pm today.
"Im going to hold a press conference at 3:00 pm today & will brief the press on various issues. Request media to kindly come," she said.
Mehbooba Mufti had earlier slammed the Central government over the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution, which conferred special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, and said she will only raise the tricolour when the "flag of Jammu and Kashmir" is brought back.
