After Kashmiris, NIA being used against farmers by GoI, alleges Mehbooba

Srinagar: Former Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday alleged that Government of India (GoI) is now using National Investigation Agency (NIA) against farmer unions after targeting Kashmiris and those who dare to dissent.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitteer Mehbooba said “ GOIs pet agency NIA is now being unleashed on farmer unions. The rot that has set into India’s premier terror investigative agency can be gauged from the manner in which they are fabricating charges on Kashmiris, farmers & those who dare to dissent “.

She was reacting to a tweet which reads “ KTV Journalist @jasveermuktsar has been sent notice by NIA. Few days ago, Jasveer and his wife welcomed their first child. He had gone  back to Punjab to cover Maghi Mela. KTV in association with British Sikh council is organizing 24*7 langar at Singhu border protest site.
