PULWAMA: Seeking unconditional release of those languishing in jails, independent MLA, Er Rasheed, Thursday said that Mehbooba Mufti asking police to release innocents amounted to a confession that forces carried out atrocities during the current unrest.
By asking police to release youths, Mehbooba Mufti has herself confessed that innocents have been booked by police without any fault, Rasheed said. It shows her helplessness to get innocents released, but also speaks about the level of highhandedness and lawlessness in state.
The incumbent lawmaker said, She needs to be told that any CM has not to beg to release innocents and she must book all those police officers who have put innocents behind the bars and lodged fabricated FIRs against them.
If despite CMs desire to release innocent, thousands are languishing in Jails, it proves beyond doubt that either police has been given complete free hand by the CM to do what they want or police administration is not taking CM seriously. Mehboob Mufti needs to explain her position over such sensitive issues. (CNS)
