Indian Court extends judicial remand of Aasiya Andrabi, Fehmeda

ISLAMABAD: A court has extended the judicial remand of Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi , and he associate, Fehmeeda Sofi, for two more days in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).

Aasiya Andrabi and Fehmeeda Sofi are currently lodged in Women's Police Station Rambagh in Srinagar. They were arrested from Soura residence of Aasiya Andrabi on April 26, KMS reported on Tuesday.

Indian police had sought remand for the DeM leaders up to May 3 and later on till May 8 which was granted by the court. On Monday, the court again extended their remand for two more days.

DeM leader, Nahida Nasreen told mediamen in Srinagar that on Monday, the remand of party leaders was extended up to May 10 though police didn't produce them before the court.

"We fail to understand why authorities are scared of a woman (Aasiya Andrabi) who has been suffering from different ailments," she said.

Nahida Nasreen said that Indian police had been making mockery of justice system. "How can you extend the remand of a detainee without producing her before the court of law? Aasiya Andrabi and Fehmeeda Sofi have been continuously in the police lockup from past 12 days," she said. (APP)
