Sana Iltija said that her mother was being treated like a criminal.
My mother is not a terrorist but she is being treated like one, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Sana Iltija told India Today TV on Wednesday.
Speaking to India Today TV in an exclusive interview with Rajdeep Sardesai, Sana Iltija said that the government had kept her from meeting her mother for over three weeks. She claimed that Mehbooba Mufti was being kept in solitary confinement as the government was trying to crush her spirit.
In an emotional interview, Sana Iltija requested the government to restore communication in the Kashmir valley so that people could have access to emergency services, averting gut-wrenching stories coming out of the region.
Here are the highlights from her interview with India Today TV:
"My mother is not a terrorist"
Sana Iltija claimed that she and her family haven't been able to get in touch with her mother since August 5, when she was taken into detention.
"I did not understand the need for her to be detained when she was already under the house arrest. My mother is not a terrorist. She is a former CM, two-time MP, so, I find it bizarre that she was treated in such a humiliating manner," Iltija said.
Sana Iltija claimed that her mother was being treated as a criminal as the security forces checked the luggage sent by them to her twice - once, at their residence and the second, after it reaches the guest house where Mehbooba Mufti is being kept as a prisoner.
