Will write to Home Minister to ensure Arsalan’s release from NIA: Mehbooba Mufti

PDP organised an impressive function at party headquarters Srinagar to welcome Asif wangnoo, a well known social activist and business personality from Baghwan pora Lalbazar Srinagar.

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti welcomed the new young known face from Srinagar to the party fold. On occasion, Ms Mehbooba Mufti interacted with the media and told that she would write to the Home Minister of India to ensure the release of Srinagar youth from the National Investigation Agency.

Pertinently, Arsalan Feroz- a 19-year-old youth from Zaldagar Srinagar, was arrested by NIA recently. In its official statement, NIA claimed that Arsalan is a TRF operative; however, his family staged a protest terming the charges baseless.

Mehbooba Mufti, as talked to media today at party headquarters Srinagar, told that family members of Arsalan, including his father, who has recently suffered a minor heart attack,k came to meet her vouched for his innocence.

“Arsalan is 19 years old who had earlier been arrested by police on 21 October last year. After spending over 40 days in police detention, he was cleared by police and accordingly released. I don’t know why NIA arrested him, though the family handed him over to the agency. NIA claims that he is TRF operative, but the family says otherwise,” Mehbooba Mufti said.

Mehbooba Mufti said that since police have no jurisdiction over NIA and the probe agency directly falls under Home Ministry, she will write to the Home Minister of India.

“There is no FIR lodged against Arsalan Feroz in past or present. I will write to Home Minister to ensure his release as his family is in trauma,” she said.
