Iltija Mufti, Daughter of former IoK’s chief minister Mehbooba Mufti was arrested from her residence in Srinagar on Thursday, Kashmir Media Service reported.
According to reports, Iltija was trying to visit her grandfather Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s grave in South Kashmir.
“I was detained at my mother’s official residence, as I was trying to step outside,” she told Anadolu Agency.
“They did not let me come out of the house. They have been harassing me all these months. This time I told them I would not be taking this lying down,” she said.
Iltija got into limelight after she criticized the Indian government, which had put her mother and her many party colleagues under detention, a day ahead Kashmir was locked down.
Iltija has been actively voicing her opinions on Twitter since then.
“I only wanted to visit my grandfather’s grave. They have been saying that everything is normal in Kashmir so why they are not letting me move around,” she said.
Her grandfather Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was also chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir twice from 2003-2005 and again from 2014-2016.
