Srinagar April 16 (KINS): PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said when it comes to cruelty “even women aren’t spared in Naya Kashmir” as she reacted to the arrest of a woman special police officer (SPO) from Kulgam district for allegedly glorifying militancy.
Saima Akhter, a resident of Frisal area of the south Kashmir district and working as SPO, was terminated from service for “obstructing” government officials in the discharge of their duty and booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
“Saima Akhter from Kulgam has been slapped with UAPA for raising legitimate questions about searching her home repeatedly without any reasons. Saima’s ailing mother understandably exacerbated her worries. When it comes to cruelty even women aren’t spared in Naya Kashmir,” Mufti said in a tweet. (KINS)
