She is being implicated in frivolous charges: Family
SOPORE POLICE STATION ATTACK CASE
Srinagar, July 16: Police have detained a would be bride allegedly in connection with the IeD blast outside Police Station Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
However, the family claimed that their daughter was “innocent” and accused the police of framing her under “concocted” charges.
The family members of Qurat-ul-Ain, 21, a resident of Jalalabad told Greater Kashmir that she was summoned to Police Station Sopore on July 12.
“Subsequently, Qurat along with her mother Mariam went to Police Station to talk with the cops,” Qurat’s father, Peerzada Shamsudin Baba said. “After a while the policemen asked my wife to leave. They told her (mother) that they would talk to Qurat and she would be released in half an hour,’ he said.
As the distraught mother left the spot, Qurat didn’t returned till late evening. “We became worried. On the next morning, I went to the Police Station and concerned SP’s office. At both places, the cops didn’t divulge details. Instead, the police tried to avoid us,” Baba said.
The family learnt that police had transported Qurat to Srinagar and lodged her in Rambagh Women’s Police Station.
“When we started inquiring, the police verbally told us that she was involved in IeD blast outside the Sopore Police Station,” Baba said in a broken voice. “They have not shown us any written document. We could not get bail since they did not give us the reason for her arrest. Later, we approached Court which directed the police to give reasons behind the arrests. The police so far had not responded. They are only making us to suffer”.
The family said Qurat has no connection with militancy and police was leveling “baseless” allegation against her.
“Police wants to keep her behind bars by hook or crook,” another family member said.
