Qazi Yasir arrested
Srinagar, Oct 08: The chairman of Ummat-e-Islami Qazi Ahmed Yasir was detained by the police on Monday morning.
A spokesman said that the police raided the residence of Qazi Yasir in the early hours on Monday and detained him.
“He was lodged at police station Sadr,” said the spokesman, adding that this was the second raid at his home within past 12 hours.
“A police team raided his residence last night as well but couldn’t find Yasir there. They took away the ballot boxes stored there for ‘demo referendum’,” he said.
Addressing a press conference yesterday, Qazi Yasir had said that Ummat-e-Islami will place ballot boxes at all the main squares of south Kashmir where people will be asked to choose between “Azadi and India.”
