Politicians, journalists, being punished for speaking truth: Mehbooba


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President, Me-hbooba Mufti, on Wednesday said that the politi-cians, journalists and activists are being punished for speaking truth in ‘Naya Kashmir’.

Talking to media persons after her mother was questioned by officials of India’s Enforcement Di-rectorate (ED) in Srinagar, today, Mehbooba Mufti said the agencies that were meant to do serious work, have been used against the politicians.

“It’s only chronology as soon after I showed re-luctance to meet Delimitation Commission and staged protest on August 05, summons were issued on the other day,” she said.

Meanwhile, Mehbooba’s mother Gulshan Nazir was today questioned for nearly three hours in con-nection with a money laundering case.

The ED had issued a notice to Nazir, asking her to appear before its office in Srinagar on August 18.—KMS
