J&K CID joins list of central agencies to terrorize Kashmiris, says Mehbooba

SRINAGAR– Former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti is all fire against Jammu and Kashmir Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for allegedly terrorizing Kashmiris and implicating them in false cases.

Mehbooba was referring to the arrest of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youth president Wahid Para.

“J&K CID has joined the list of central agencies that work to terrorize Kashmiris & falsely implicate them. After failing to substantiate charges against Para, CID replaced the SIT head because he refused to be an accomplice in framing invented charges,” Mehbooba tweeted.

She noted that Para is being persecuted and tortured to admit the false allegations. “Since an admission didn’t happen, he is being kept under inhuman conditions. This investigation has been fraudulent & politically motivated from day one. The norm dictating such deceitful investigations is ‘Show me the man & I’ll show you the crime’. Shameful & appalling that these actions discredit & bring disrepute to the institutions meant to uphold law & order,” she said.

Mehbooba said the norm dictating such deceitful investigations is: ‘Show me the man & I’ll show you the crime’. “Shameful & appalling that these actions discredit & bring disrepute to the institutions meant to uphold law & order,” she said.

Para was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for alleged militant links a day after he had filed his nomination for District Development Council (DDC) polls from Pulwama constituency on November 24. On December 22, he won his seat despite being in jail.

On January 9, he was granted bail by NIA court in Jammu. However, he was soon rearrested by Criminal Investigation (Kashmir) range, which has been probing different terror cases.

“After getting bail from NIA Court due to lack of evidence, @parawahid has now been booked under UAPA by CIK on fabricated charges in a terror case yet again. This is a purely political vendetta against PDP for raising our voice against Delhi’s onslaught,” Mehbooba said.

Mehbooba’s statement comes on the day when the Centre told parliament that a total of 183 persons are still detained under Public Safety Act (PSA), while no one is under house arrest in Jammu and Kashmir.

Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said since August 1, 2019, 613 persons “including separatists, overground workers, stone pelters etc. were detained at various points of time”.

“Out of these, based on regular review and ground situation, 430 persons have been released till date,” he said while responding to the questions by Congress leader from Assam Ripun Bora and Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi
