“Detained Once Again,” Says Mehbooba Mufti, Shares Videos

“GOI wants to continue inflicting oppression & zulm on the people of J&K without any questions asked,” Mufti tweeted with videos.

Mehbooba Mufti, the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP chief, today claimed she had been “detained once again” inside her residence in Srinagar by authorities. She tweeted videos of her demanding that the gates of her home premises be unlocked so that she could venture out.

“Illegal detention has become GOI’s favourite go to method for muzzling any form of opposition. I’ve been detained once again because I wanted to visit Budgam where hundreds of families were evicted from their homes,” the former J&K CM said.

“GOI wants to continue inflicting oppression & zulm on the people of J&K without any questions asked,” Mufti tweeted with videos.

The videos she posted, interestingly, showed the gate locked from inside the premise. Ms Mufti is heard calling out to someone on the other side to open it even as she speaks to a handful of other aides and security personnel within the compound.

She, while knocking the gate, is heard saying, “Open the doors, I have to go out…Please show me the papers. Under what law have you detained me?” There’s no response heard to her queries in videos.

“Later the Lt Governor and others will say we didn’t detain her…what kind of joke is this,” the PDP leader is heard saying.

Earlier on Tuesday morning, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi alleged this morning that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been placed under “house arrest” by the police ever since he met with the protesting farmers yesterday and has been forced to cancel his meetings.

The party also alleged that the Chief Minister was deliberately blocked because of the Bharat Bandh called by farmers protesting against the central government’s new farm laws.
