Maqbool Bhat’s 14-yr-old nephew arrested
Srinagar, Aug 25: Police on Wednesday re-arrested the nephew of JKLF founder Muhammad Maqbool Bhat from frontier district of Kupwara.
The 14-year old Adil Manzoor Bhat was re-arrested by police this afternoon minutes after a local court granted him bail.
“My nephew has been held on baseless and false charges. After he came out of sub jail Kupwara, policemen standing outside bundled him in Rakshak vehicle and took him along. He is studying in Srinagar and would hardly come home,” his uncle Zahoor Bhat told Greater Kashmir.
He accused police of making the life of Bhat family hellish in past two weeks.
“Last week, they barged into our house and resorted to indiscriminate firing. They misbehaved with my mother, wife and sister –in-law,” he said, adding that police was constantly harassing the family for participating in pro-freedom demonstrations.
When contacted Superintendent of Police Kupwara Vidhi Kumar Birdi said Adil has been detained in another case.
