In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian infamous National Investigation Agency (NIA) court has framed charges against illegally detained Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) and eight others in a three years old fake case.

The special judge designated under NIA, Javed Alam put Aasiya Andrabi and her two close incarcerated associates, Nahida Nasreen and Fahmeeda Sofi besides six others on trial for various offenses punishable under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

It said that the unruly mob equipped with stones attacked the government vehicles and forces personnel deployed on law and order duties.

The three DeM leaders are already at New Delhi’s Tihar Jail since 2018.
