FIR registered against top Kashmiri woman leader on charges of inciting people against Indian Army
NEW DELHI - A First Information Report has been registered against top Kashmiri woman leader on charges of inciting people against Indian Army.
New Delhi Police on Friday registered a First Information Report against Jammu and Kashmir People's Movement Leader Shehla Rashid for inciting people against the Indian army.
Rashid has highlighted the atrocities committed by the Indian army in Indian-occupied Kashmir since New Delhi imposed a military curfew in the valley in early August.
On August 5, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had revoked the constitutional autonomy of the occupied territory and sent in hundreds of thousands of troops in the area, enforcing a total communications blackout.
Rashid has been active on social media as information creeps in from IoK about widespread human rights abuse, including torture of detainees, mass blinding and sexual violence against women.
In which I highlight the grave humanitarian crisis that we're faced with - undocumented arrests of thousands of people. I also highlight the need to stop blaming Pakistan for a homegrown mess. Let's not blame Imran Khan for a mess created by Modi-Shah-Doval trio. link s/1168576377160814593 … link Tehseen Poonawalla ✔@tehseenp

Rashid claims that the Indian Army has been indiscriminately picking up men, raiding houses and torturing people in the occupied territory, reports *India Today*.
According to the political activist, these human rights abuses were being carried out to serve the agenda of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and Indian PM Modi.
The FIR against Rashid comes as India holds other Kashmiri leaders, including former chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehmooba Mufti under house arrest. Srinagar mayor Junaid Mattu is under detention too.
