‘Police making mockery of court orders’
SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Tuesday slammed government and police for re-arresting party chairperson Syeda Aasiya Andrabi and her two associates, and booking them in another case after court issued an interim bail in their favour on Monday.
In a statement, DeM spokesperson Rifat Fatima said, “After the court issued orders of interim bail in favour of Andrabi Sahiba, party general secretary Nahida Nasreen and press secretary Sofi Fehmeeda, the police took them to Soura police station where another fake case was registered against them. From there, the trio was taken to Rambagh Women’s police station and have been kept in police remand till June 2.”
The spokesperson added, “It was barbaric that since April 20, false cases are being registered against the trio one after another.”
“On May 28, an interim bail order was issued and police were asked to immediately release the trio but instead of releasing them, police came up with yet another fake case against the DeM leaders and have extended the police remand until June 2. This is barbaric and mockery of their own law. Isn’t it funny that police mocks the judgements that have been issued by its own courts,” she said adding that the denial of proper medical care to party chairperson is taking a heavy toll on her health.
