Planning to visit Shopian, PDP President Mehbooba Mufti put under house arrest

SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti was put under house arrest by the authorities on Tuesday.

As per the reports, Mehbooba Mufti wanted to visit the family of the Kashmiri Pandit, who was attacked in Shopian earlier this month.

Mehbooba Mufti in a tweet said, “Placed under house arrest today because I wanted to visit the family of the Kashmiri Pandit attacked in Shopian. GOI willfully spreads fake propaganda about Kashmiri mainstream & Muslims responsible for Pandit exodus & doesn’t want this fake divisive narrative to be exposed”.

In another tweet, she said, “Doesn’t take a genius to figure out who will benefit politically by deepening mistrust & sowing seeds of division & hatred”.

It is pertinent to mention here that a Kashmir Pandit shopkeeper identified as Bal Krishan was shot at and injured by militants near his house at Choutigam Shopian.
