Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday tweeted that she has been put under house arrest as the authorities have reportedly told her that the situation is not normal outside.

She claimed that she was not allowed to move out by police from her Gupkar residence in Srinagar. She did a series of tweets about the house arrest and said in one of the tweets, “GOI expresses concern for the rights of Afghan people but wilfully denies the same to Kashmiris. Ive been placed under house arrest today because according to admin the situation is far from normal in Kashmir. This exposes their fake claims of normalcy”.

In another tweet Mehbooba said, “GOI’s dubious claims that people of J&K now enjoy equal rights is a barefaced lie as truth is that even their basic human rights dead or alive are suspended with pervasive impunity”.

Earlier before her house arrest she had done this tweet, “Having turned Kashmir into an open air prison, now even the dead aren’t spared. A family isn’t allowed to mourn & bid a final farewell as per their wishes. Booking Geelani sahab’s family under UAPA shows GOI’s deep rooted paranoia & ruthlessness. This is New India’s Naya Kashmir”.

After her tweet, police uploaded a video showing the burial of Geelani and said that all other allegations were not true that they have mistreated the family and the body.
