Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti Tuesday lashed out at the government of India for it’s repressive approach towards educated youth of Kashmir.

The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir was reacting to the custodial death of a youth from south Kashmir’s Awantipora.

Taking to her Twitter handle, the only female chief minister of the state said that innocent men were being hauled up from their homes for interrogation only to return home in coffins, “Innocent men hauled up from their homes for interrogation return home only in coffins now. GoI’s repressive approach leaves young educated men vulnerable who are forced to take up arms. Stop using Kashmir to exhibit your sick chauvinistic nationalism. We have suffered enough.” She wrote.
