‘I’ve been illegally detained again, not allowed to visit party leader’; claims Mehbooba Mufti

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said that she has been illegally detained in her house and not allowed to visit a party leader in Pulwama district.

“Ive 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 tweeted.

Mehbooba also alleged that her daughter Iltija has been placed under 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,” the PDP chief said.

The former chief minister said that she will hold a press conference today at 3 pm.

“Im going to hold a press conference at 3:00 pm today & will brief the press on various issues. Request media to kindly come,” Mehbooba tweeted.
