Asiya booked for hoisting Pakistani flag

Srinagar: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Syed Asiya Andrabi, was booked for hoisting Pakistan’s flag on the neighbouring country’s Independence Day in Kashmir, last week police said.

“A case FIR no 84/2015 under Section 13 of Unlawful Activities Act has been registered against Andrabi,” a police official said.

He said investigations in the case were in progress and, if need be, more sections will be invoked against the pro-freedom leader.

The DeM chief unfurled Pakistan’s flag and sang its national anthem on the neighbouring country’s Independence Day in Bachpora area on the outskirts of the city on Friday last.

Hours later, Andrabi stoked another controversy by addressing a rally organised by alleged Mumbai mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led Jamat-ud Dawa in Pakistan and greeted the people of the neighbouring country on their Independence Day in a telephonic address.

Andrabi had earlier also celebrated Pakistan’s National Day on March 23 this year and hoisted the flag of country and sung its national anthem, following which the police had registered a case against her under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. (PTI)
