Srinagar: PDP President and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday alleged that she has been placed under house arrest right before she could visit the family of Kashmiri Pandit at Harmain area of south Kashmir’s Shopian district who was recently attacked by militants.

“Placed under house arrest today because I wanted to visit the family of the Kashmiri pandit attacked in Shopian. GOI wilfully spreads fake propaganda about Kashmiri mainstream & muslims responsible for pandit exodus & doesn’t want this fake divisive narrative to be exposed,” tweeted Mehbooba.

Pertinently, on April 4 militants fired upon a Kashmiri pandit, Sonu Kumar Balaji, a resident of Shopian. Sonu, a medical shop owner, was injured and subsequently shifted to the hospital for treatment.
