Srinagar: The recently elected District Development Council (DDC) members from Budgam district who were scheduled to meet the visiting foreign envoys on Wednesday at Magam have been allegedly put under detention and are not being allowed to move outside, KNO reported.
DDC Vice-chairperson for Budgam, Nazir Ahmad Jahra, said that six National Conference (NC) DDC members have been put under detention at Shoray-e-Afaq while one has been kept at a local hotel.
He said that two DDC members from Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) have been kept at home and no one is being allowed to move outside.
Jahra said only few DDC members including the DDC chairperson were allowed to meet the envoys, adding that other members should have also been allowed to meet the delegation.
He also said that they have been locked from the last three days. “We are being treated as thieves,” he said.
Pertinently, a delegation of foreign envoys from the European Union is on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir. (KNO)
