Mukhtar Waza placed under house arrest in IOK

ISLAMABAD: In Indian occupied Kashmir, the authorities placed Hurriyat leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League (JKPL), Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, under house arrest in Islamabad town, today.

According to Kashmir media service , a JKPL spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Mukhtar Ahmed Waza was scheduled to visit Pulwama to express solidarity with the family of a woman, Firdousa Akhtar, who was martyred by Indian troops, yesterday.

However, he said a police party came to the residence of the JKPL Chairman and asked him not to venture out as he is under house detention.

A spokesman strongly condemned the action, terming it as sheer political vengeance.
