In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Bharatiya Janata Party led regime has suspended Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) Secretary Sofi Akbar two days after his arrest in a fake case.
The Commissioner SMC Athar Amir confirmed that the secretary of the corporation has been suspended with immediate effect.
Sofi along with his two children and two other persons were arrested by Indian police on Saturday on fake charges by Indian police and agencies.
The IGP Kashmir zone had said that five detainees include SMC Secretary Sofi Muhammad Akbar, his two children Nazish Yasrab Rehmani and Tabish Akbar Rehmani from Sanatnagar and Rajbagh, Peerzada Raqif Makhdoomi from Batpora, Hazratbal and Javed Khalid from Poonch.
Police in a statement on Saturday claimed that during searches of the suspect premises recovered a large amount of cell phones, digital storage devices and computing platforms.
In one house alone, 32 mobile phones, one tablet, two laptops, four hard disk storage devices, seven memory cards and one dongle were seized.”—KMS
