‘Police remand of Aasiya, others extended’

SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Tuesday said that the government of India and local authorities have launched a crackdown on the people in Kashmir in a bid to break their resolve of seeking the right of self-determination.
In a statement, DeM spokesperson Rifat Fatima said authorities are under wrong impression that arrests and crackdowns on people and leadership is going to break the resolve of freedom loving people.
She said that till the people of Kashmir will not get the right of self-determination, they will continue with the fight.
Meanwhile, Fatima said that the incarcerated chairperson of DeM Aasiya Andrabi, secretary general Nahida Nasreen, press secretary Sofi Fehemeeda and other two girls who were arrested by police last month were on Wednesday presented in a court at Anantnag and have been sent to police remand for ten days.
“They were driven from Central Jail Srinagar in a vehicle that was not in the condition of travelling. Since Asiya Sahiba is an asthma patient, she had to continuously use inhaler for want of oxygen in the vehicle. This is deliberately done,” she said.
Fatima said that while Mehbooba Mufti is busy in offering greetings of the holy month to people, there are no facilities for prisoners in the jails. She said the inmates are not allowed to buy anything from outside.
