Srinagar, September 29, 2021 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the President of Peoples Democratic Party, Mehbooba Mufti, has said that Indian Army ransacked houses and thrashed members of a family in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

“Army from Yagwani camp in Tral ransacked homes and ruthlessly thrashed a family last night. The daughter owing to her serious injuries was admitted to hospital. Not the first time that civilians from this village have been beaten up by the army in this area,” Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.

The family said that their daughter Ishrat Jan was dragged while her clothes were torn before she fell unconscious and was later taken to hospital. While talking with the media, Ishrat said that the army personnel dragged her out of the house and tried to take her away in their vehicle.

Ishrat said that she raised a hue and cry after which villagers came out and saved her. She said Indian Army has been raiding their house frequently due to which they are feeling disturbed and insecure.
