Why am I under house arrest?: Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter to Amit Shah


Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter has released a second voice message saying she has been detained at her home, days after her mother was arrested. Iltija Javed has also written to Home Minister Amit Shah saying she has been “threatened with dire consequences” if she speaks to the media again. “Kashmiris have been caged like animals and deprived of basic human rights,” she wrote in her letter. As the lockdown in the Kashmir Valley enters its twelfth day, the top mainstream political leaders remain under arrest. Two former Chief Ministers – Ms Mufti and Omar Abdullah – are among those who have been arrested.
