JRL calls for Kashmir shutdown on Saturday

7

The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a shutdown tomorrow against the shifting of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) chief Asiya Andrabi and her two associates to New Delhi by National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Andrabi and her two associates Nahida Nasreen and Fahmeeda Sofi were formally arrested by NIA in Srinagar and shifted to Delhi.

Asiya and her associates were already detained in central jail Srinagar.

All three were produced before District and Sessions Judge Poonam Bamba in New Delhi.

During the in-camera proceedings, the judge allowed the plea of the NIA that all three were required to be quizzed as investigation has revealed that by their activities in cyber space they “are running a concerted campaign to solicit support” from militant entities from Pakistan.

The NIA had sought the custody for 15 days and the court has granted 10 days custody.

The NIA has been investigated various other resistance leaders from Kashmir, many of whom are currently lodged in Delhi’s Tihar jail.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
