Srinagar People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) on Tuesday said that the latest decision of the Administration to create state Investigating Agency (SIA) by all counts is only aimed to strengthen the repressive apparatus in this region.

PAGD in a statement said that the formation of one more agency empowered with unbridled powers is one more assault on democratic rights and civil liberties of citizens.

“In the name of fighting terrorism these agencies and laws are being weaponised against the citizens who hold a different viewpoint from the government,” PAGD spokesman, Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami said.
