Strict measures against lady SPO of Kulgam are revengeful: NC
Denouncing the act, party’s Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar and District President Kulgam Abdul Majeed Bhat Larmi said in a statement issued here that the strict measures against the lady SPO are revengeful in nature. They said that the measure has been taken after a video started making rounds on the social media platform in which the Saima Jan was apparently outraged by the frequent searches of security forces at her house in Frisal.
The duo said that if the woman was at all involved in any militancy activity, she should have been brought to justice by the concerned authorities much before the video surfaced. “It was only after the video went viral that she was terminated and booked. The entire sequence of events has raised questions on the whole exercise. The action of slapping UAPA on her, locals of the area also allege has been taken with malafide intentions.”
They said that she is the only bread winner for her family which besides her comprises her ailing and aging parents.
“The disproportionate action against the lady comes as a surprise also since no punitive action was taken against the mob which had beaten an on duty police officer to pulp at New Delhi the other day. While the lady from Frisal who has been arrested has only pointed to the predicaments suffered by her family in wake of intermittent night raids by the security forces,” they said.
The duo impressed upon the government to compassionately look at the issue and ensure that no clean-handed person is subjected to any quandary.
