Cases against Kashmiri students: Mehbooba accuses Centre of resorting to vindictive action

Srinagar , Oct 26 ( KINS)  PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday accused the Centre of resorting to “vindictive” action against Kashmiri youth and said such steps will “alienate them further” after cases were registered against some students for celebrating Pakistan’s victory over India in a T20 international cricket match.

Two cases have been registered under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) against medical students living in hostels in Government Medical College and SKIMS Soura.

Reacting to it, the PDP president said the Centre should instead have tried to ascertain why the educated youth choose to identify with Pakistan.

Such steps will alienate them further,” the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister said on Twitter.
