Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar Abdullah on Sunday claimed he and his family, including his father and Member of Parliament Farooq Abdullah, have been put under house arrest by authorities.
The National Conference Vice President while taking to his Twitter handle said, “This is the ‘naya/new J&K’ after Aug 2019. We get locked up in our homes with no explanation. It’s bad enough they’ve locked my father (a sitting MP) & me in our home, they’ve locked my sister & her kids in their home as well,”
Omar also posted photographs showing police vehicles outside the gates of his residence in the Gupkar area of the city here.
Omar also alleged that his house staff was not being let inside,“Chalo, your new model of democracy means that we are kept in our homes without explanation but on top of that the staff that works in the house aren’t being allowed in and then you are surprised that I’m still angry & bitter,” he said in another tweet.
The Srinagar Police, however, claimed that the “movement of VIPs and Protected Persons has been discouraged” due to the anniversary of the 2019 Pulwama attack.
