Police says movement of protected persons discouraged due to ‘adverse inputs’
Srinagar: Scores of protected persons were either put under house detention or asked not plan any tour on Sunday, officials said.
According to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar Abdullah in a tweet informed that he along with his father Dr. Farooq Abdullah, who is incumbent parliamentarian have been put under house detention.
“This is the “naya/new J&K” after Aug 2019. We get locked up in our homes with no explanation. It’s bad enough they’ve locked my father (a sitting MP) & me in our home, they’ve locked my sister & her kids in their home as well,” Omar tweeted.
“Chalo, your new model of democracy means that we are kept in our homes without explanation but on top of that the staff that works in the house aren’t being allowed in and then you are surprised that I’m still angry & bitter,” he wrote.
Sources said that some more protected persons have been asked not to move out today.
Officials told KNO that in wake of the second anniversary of Pulwama attack, the movement of protected persons have been discouraged due to adverse inputs. They said the protected persons were in advance informed not to plan any visit today.
Notably, over 45 CRPF men were killed on this day in Lethpora area of Pulwama in 2019 after a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the convoy of 78 vehicles carrying more than 3500 CRPF men—(KNO)
