The Delhi Police on Friday filed an FIR against Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement leader and activist Shehla Rashid for levelling false allegations against the Army.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Rashid was booked for sedition on a criminal complaint by Supreme Court lawyer Alok Srivastav who had sought the arrest of Rashid.

The Special Cell of the Delhi Police lodged the FIR under sections 124-A, 153A,153, 504, 505 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The activist had levelled a series on baseless and fake allegations on the situation in the state after the abrogation of Article 370 in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir. The Army has rubbished allegations of torture levelled by Rashid and in a statement had referred to her charges as “baseless”.

She had claimed that Armed forces were “ransacking” houses of common people in Jammu and Kashmir and “picking up boys”. She had alleged that four persons were detained by Army personnel and tortured in Shopian.

In a series of tweets, Shehla attributed to “people” as saying the Jammu and Kashmir Police department has no law and order situation.

“They’ve been rendered powerless. Everything is in the hands of paramilitary forces,” read a tweet by her.

According to Shehla, while petrol and diesel are available in the region, “people have started running out of medicines now”.
