Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Police Thursday sealed the office of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Srinagar and detained some of its leaders after foiling a protest march by the party against the new land law.
Reports suggest that the PDP leaders had decided to hold a protest rally from the party headquarters in Srinagar to the Press Enclave. However, as soon as they reached the party headquarters, they were detained by police already deployed there.
The PDP leaders who were detained include Khurshid Aalam, Waheed Parra, Suhail Bukhari, Rouf Bhat, Mohit Bhan, Tahir Sayeed, Yasin Bhat and Hameed Kohsheen.
“PDP’s @parawahid, Khurshid Alam, Rouf Bhat,@MohsinQayoom_ & @buttkout were arrested by J&K police for protesting against the settler colonial land laws thrusted upon people of J&K. We will continue to raise our voice collectively & wont tolerate attempts to change demographics,” she said in another tweet.
