Jammu and Kashmir police on Friday refuted reports of house arrest of some NC and PDP leaders and termed them as completely baseless.
In a statement issued to media, a spokesperson said that there is a fake news going that some NC and PDP leaders have been placed under house arrest in Gupkar road, this news is completely baseless.
The statement reads that there are additional personnel deployed on Gupkar road on certain places in view of certain inputs of militant attack.
“Mehbooba Mufti visited her party headquarters around noon time and Dr Farooq Abdullah visited Hazratbal shrine and his friend in Shalimar in Afternoon,” it reads.
It added that media friends are advised to verify news from authorities before circulating.
“JKP is a fully professional police force and is well aware of its duties,” it reads.
Earlier, Jammu and Kashmir National Conference in a tweet said, “Dr Farooq Abdullah has been placed under house arrest after returning from Nawai-Subha where he had earlier presided over a meeting and said “We will peacefully fight for our RIGHTS that were illegally, unconstitutionally and undemocratically snatched from us on August 5, 2019”.”
Meanwhile National Conference Vice- President Omar Abdullah tweeted, “It seems they have to place this truck outside the gate out of some compulsion because it’s a senseless act (aside from being totally illegal).”
“He went to the office, went for Namaz, went for a condolence visit. The truck arrived after he had no where else to go today. Fools!!”, he said.
