On Wednesday, Mehbooba Mufti who is the former Chief Minister Jammu and Kashmir and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president informed that she is yet again put under house arrest for her plans to visit a village in Tral, Pulwama district, that was allegedly “ransacked by army”. She added that this is the real picture of Kashmir and the same should be shown to visiting dignitaries instead of the guided ones.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote, “Locked up in my house today yet again for attempting to visit the village in Tral allegedly ransacked by the army. This is the real picture of Kashmir that visiting dignitaries must be shown instead of GOIs sanitized and guided picnic tours.”Along with the post, she shared a picture of a vehicle that appears to belong to the security forces and allegedly blocked the main gate of her residence on Gupkar road.
On Tuesday, the PDP chief reported that Army personnel had thrashed a family and ransacked homes in Tral. Further, the daughter of the family suffered from serious injury and was taken to hospital, where she is undergoing treatment. She added that she would meet her kin.
In a microblogging site, Mehbooba Mufti penned, “Army from Yagwani Camp in Tral ransacked homes and ruthlessly thrashed a family last night. The daughter, owing to her injuries, was admitted to the hospital. Not the first time that civilians from a village have been beaten up by the army in this area.”
Earlier in this month, the former chief minister informed that she had been placed under house arrest and that the administration had told her that the situation was far from normal in the state. On 7 September, Mufti asserted that her house arrest exposed “the fake claims of normalcy” in the valley by the central government.
