SRINAGAR: Police on Sunday arrested father of JKLF vice-president Showkat Ahmad Bakshi.
In a statement a spokesman of the Front while condemning the arrest of 82-year-old Ghulam Mohammad Bakshi, said, “Arresting the kith and kin of peaceful political workers, raiding their houses and torturing their relatives in the name of democratic elections is actually shameful.”
He said that state administration is scared of JKLF and other resistance groups.
“Police has also raided the house of Altaf Khan and threatened to arrest his relatives if he does not surrender,” he said.
The spokesman said that despite such measures they will continue with their election boycott campaign.
