Former Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti
Former Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and leader of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti, said on Wednesday that she was under house arrest again over her intention to visit a village in Tral, in the district of Pulwama which would have been “ransacked by army”.
She said this was the real image of Kashmir and the same should be shown to dignitaries rather than escorts.
"Locked up in my house today yet again for attempting to visit the village in Tral allegedly ransacked by army. This is the real picture of Kashmir that visiting dignitaries must be shown instead of GOIs sanitised & guided picnic tours," Mufti wrote on Twitter.
She also posted a photo of a vehicle which apparently belonged to the security forces and which allegedly blocked the main entrance to her house on the road to Gupkar.
On Tuesday, the PDP chief said members of the military beat a family and ransacked homes in Tral. The family's daughter was seriously injured in the attack and is being treated in a hospital, she said, adding that she would meet her relatives.
"Army from Yagwani camp in Tral ransacked homes and ruthlessly thrashed a family last night. The daughter owing to her serious injuries was admitted to hospital. Not the first time that civilians from this village have been beaten up by army in this area,” she wrote on the microblogging site.
Also earlier this month, the PDP leader said she was under house arrest and that the government had told her that the situation in Kashmir was anything but normal. On September 7th, Mufti said his house arrest contained "false accusations of normality" by the central government in the valley.
She was arrested by Jammu and Kashmiri police on November 27th last year and was not allowed to meet the family of PDP leader Waheed Parra in Pulwama after her arrest. Mufti said his daughter, Iltija Mufti, had also been placed under house arrest.
The former prime minister was jailed for more than a year after the central government led by Narendra Modi decided to repeal Article 370, which granted the former state of Jammu and Kashmir a privilege. She was subsequently charged under the Public Security Act (PSA), an official said.
Almost all of the valley's political leaders, including Farooq Abdullah of the National Conference, his son Omar Abdullah and the President of the People's Conference, Sajjad Lone, were arrested when the center was abolished and the special state was divided. in two regions of the Union.
