Dossier accused Former CM Mehbooba Mufti’s remarks are allegedly against the Army, pro-militant tweets and attempts “to collaborate with separatists”.
New Delhi: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was booked under the stringent Public Safety Act (PSA) on 6 February, was referred to as ‘Kota Rani’ in the Dossier prepared by the J&K administration.
Kota Rani, who belonged to the Lohara dynasty, was the last Hindu queen who ruled over Kashmir.
In government dossier, Mufti has been accused of working with separatists, making “anti-national” statements and extending support to organisations that have been banned under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. It also mentions the Peoples Democratic Party chief’s tweets opposing the criminalisation of instant triple talaq, and remarks about the lynchings of Muslims across India.
“The subject (Mufti) is referred, for her dangerous and insidious machinations and usurping profile and nature, by the masses as ‘Daddy’s girl’ and ‘Kota Rani’, based on the profile of a medieval queen of Kashmir, who rose to power by virtue of undertaking intrigues ranging from poisoning of her opponents,” the dossier said.
“Believe it or not but PSA dossier drafted on instructions of MHA on Ms Mufti, a former J&K CM states the following-
‘The subject is referred for her dangerous & insidious machinations & usurping profile & nature as ‘Daddy’s girl’,” Mehbooba Mufti tweeted expressing disappointment.

The dossier asserts that the material evidence produced by the police substantiates the case that deliberate attempts were made by “the subject” to create an atmosphere of fear and chaos, so as to create mass agitation leading to “public order” (sic) including incitement to violence.
The dossier, which is made by the police department, describes Mehbooba as a “hard-headed” and “scheming person.” “The actions of the subject range from speeches glorifying militants…and there have many occasions when the subject promoted separatism,” it reads, pointing to “several confidential and secret reports of very serious nature” prepared by the agencies.
