Srinagar (NVI): Peoples Democratic Party chief and former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti claimed that she and her daughter, Iltija Mufti, have been put under house arrest by Jammu and Kashmir administration.

Mufti further claimed that for the past two days, she had not been allowed to console the family of Waheed Parra, who was arrested by the national investigating agency (NIA) earlier this week.

“Ive been illegally detained yet again. Since two days, J&K admin has refused to allow me to visit @parawahid’s family in Pulwama. BJP Ministers & their puppets are allowed to move around in every corner of Kashmir but security is a problem only in my case,” Mufti tweeted this morning.

She said her daughter has also been put under the house arrest.

“Their cruelty knows no bounds. Waheed was arrested on baseless charges & I am not allowed to even console his family. Even my daughter Iltija has been placed under house arrest because she also wanted to visit Waheed’s family,” she further tweeted.

“I’m going to hold a press conference at 3:00 pm today & will brief the press on various issues. Request media to kindly come,” the PDP chief informed.
