Former chief minister of Jammu, Kashmir imprisoned for opposing anti-encroachment drive

(MENAFN) Mehbooba Mufti, a former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, was taken into custody on Wednesday in the nation's capital, New Delhi, for demonstrating against the government of Jammu and Kashmir's anti-encroachment campaign in the valley.

"Jammu and Kashmir has been transformed into Afghanistan by the Bharatiya Janata Party," claimed Mufti at the protest venue (BJP). The government is tearing down the impoverished people's homes using bulldozers as part of an anti-encroachment campaign.

The Mufti was seen being dragged by police officers from the protest location and put into a police vehicle in the footage seen on local media networks.

She claimed that in addition to robbing Kashmiris of their homes and employment, the BJP is also stealing their lands.

She urged everyone in the opposition to get together and oppose this barbarism.

On February 6, the Jammu and Kashmir government released a statement claiming that the Evacuee Property Department had the responsibility of protecting the evacuee property. "The department responds quickly to allegations of encroachment with the help of the Revenue Department and recovers unlawfully occupied evacuee land from the encroachers/land grabbers/illegal occupancy."
