PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti while reacting beating up of SDM by Army has said that ‘Jungle Raj’ is prevailing in Kashmir nowadays.
she said, “No law exists in Kashmir. The thrashing of SDM along with his employees, highway has been closed, inmates are beaten in the jails, bodies recovered during the encounters are being mutilated and are burnt by chemicals.”
Mehbooba said it doesn’t seem that the people of Jammu and Kashmir have acceded to the country which Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah and Maharaja Hari Singh had chosen. “The country we had acceded to was equal for all Sikhs, Muslims and Hindus,” Mehbooba said.
“News of physical assault on SDM Duroo by Army is very shocking. If true, DC/SSP Anantnag should immediately register an FIR and arrest the erring personnel. It is hoped that AFSPA won’t come in the way of IPC/RPC and the action will be taken,” Faesal wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Mufti tweeted, “Army thrashing civilians in the state is nothing new. But manhandling civil officers marks a new low. The valley & its people are being choked to a silent death. For how long will you oppress them in their own land? Is this what we deserve for choosing India over Pakistan?”
