Declaring suspects as terrorists premature, Mehbooba on NIA arrests

Date:

Srinagar, Dec 28

Questioning the timing of the arrests made by Investigation Agency (NIA) ahead of Parliamentary elections slated to be held next year, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti said that declaring suspects as terrorists on the basis of Sutli bombs and associating them with IS is premature.
Ms Mehbooba, who is the former chief minister of the state, said national security is supreme, but NIA must learn from earlier episodes in which the accused were acquitted after decades.
But declaring suspects as terrorists on the basis of Sutli bombs, associating with the dreaded IS is premature. It has already devastated their lives and families.
NIA must learn from earlier episodes in which the accused were acquitted after decades, Ms Mehbooba wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
She said the arrests by NIA in the election season do raise suspicion, especially after the urban Naxal case seems to be falling apart. National security is best served by being just and inclusive, not suspicious of an entire community, she twitted.
Ms Mehbooba was responding to reports that the NIA on Wednesday detained 10 people from Uttar Pradesh and Delhi for their suspected involvement with a new ISIS-inspired terror module planning to carry out blasts in , especially in the national capital. AGENCIES)
