SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Tuesday said police raided the house of its general secretary, Nahida Nasreen, “in the middle of the night” and detained her.
In a statement, a DeM spokesperson said, “A large contingent of police raided the residence of party general secretary at around 12:00 am during the intervening night of Monday-Tuesday. After a brief questioning, the police party took away Nahida Nasreen Sahiba with them and lodged her in Women’s Police Station, Rambagh.”
“This is shameless and cowardly act of police that they barged into a private property and then arrested a woman (during midnight),” she said.
She said that by caging the leadership, New Delhi cannot break the resolve of DeM cadres. “Dukhtaran-e-Millat is a caravan and a movement. By using force and by caging its leadership, this movement will never be crushed,” she said.
