Police on Friday refuted allegations by former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti after her party leader was summoned.
Mufti had tweeted: “The PDP’s @RoufBhaat was summoned to Shergarhi police station today. He was asked to report everyday & ensure he stays from 8am- 8pm till SMC elections are over. As usual ‘upar say order’ is the justification. @manojsinha_ ji is this going to be the new norm for elections in J&K?”
“During any election, @PoliceSgr calls released militants/OGWs to Police Stations to update their profiles @RoufBhaat was also called to the PS for updation of his personal profile, as he was associated with HM outfit.@PoliceSgr refutes all such allegations,” police said in a tweet on official handle.
To the police’s tweet, Bhat replied: “This is not just about me, but about the idea of democracy that is being throttled by the BJP run admin here everyday. These constant summons & arrests are all part of the plan to create yet another 1987 in J&K by rigging the polls & allowing the BJP to win!”
