Rahul Gandhi calls for immediate release of Soz
New Delhi: Calling for immediate release of Congress leader Saifuddin Soz, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said “illegal” detention of political leaders damages the fabric of the country.
“The illegal detention of political leaders with absolutely no basis damages the fabric of our nation. Mr Soz must be released at once,” Gandhi tweeted.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court took on record the Jammu and Kashmir administration’s statement that former Union minister Soz was never placed under detention and disposed of his wife’s plea seeking his release.
Gandhi has been critical of the government’s handling of the Jammu and Kashmir situation and detention of political leaders since August 05 last year.
