Jammu, Jan 16 : The arrest of a kashmiri youth by dehli police echoed in the legislative Assembly with oppostion seeking statement from government on the matter.
As soon as the legislative assembly resumed its business on Tuesday, independent legislator, Er Rasheed along with MLA Khanyar stood up from their seat and pressed the PDP-BJP government to issue a statement on the arrest of Bilal Ahmad Kawa who was arrested in Delhi few days ago.
“Bilal Kawa ka ky kasoor hai?” Rasheed asked the government. “Do you want to create another Afzal Guru out of Kawa?”
“Kawa is innocent and J&K police also told me that Kawa has clear record,” the MLA Langate Rasheed told the house.
“Innocents are being jailed,” he said and walked in to the well of the house.”We want an answer from the government.”
“Why has Kawa been arrested after 16 years; aap nay ghar ka chiraag buja diya hai,” Rasheed told the house. “J&K CID head has given in writing that there is nothing against Kawa but why has he been arrested?”
“Kya Kashmir ka khoon itna sasta hai,” he said while government remained unmoved and minister A R Veeri continued giving answers on Ring Roads issue.
