Srinagar, October 28 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the family members and relatives of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief, Syed Salahuddin have said that they will tender court arrest if the so-called authorities failed to stop their harassment by India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Around 50 elders from Soibugh – ancestral village of Salahuddin in central Kashmir – met with the Deputy Commissioner (DC) and Superintendent of Police (SP) of Budgam to convey their concerns over the harassment of Salahuddin’s family.

The family and the residents of Soibugh village, according to reports, threatened to court arrest if the harassment was not immediately stopped. We will court arrest and the responsibility of any untoward happening will lie with the puppet authorities, they said.

Pertinently, one of Salahuddin’s sons, Syed Shahid Yousuf, was arrested earlier this week by the NIA after summoning him its headquarters in Delhi. Later, a Delhi court sent Syed Shahid Yousuf to seven days NIA custody in connection with a fake case.

After his arrest, the family had issued a statement, claiming that Shahid was arrested to pressurize Salahuddin to submission. In the statement, the family while maintaining that Shahid was innocent, said his arrest was an age-old tactic by the Delhi government to harass the family and to defame our father.

On Friday, Salahuddin’s grandson, Muzammil Ahmad Khan, was also summoned by the probe agency for questioning in Delhi.

Muzammil Ahmad Khan, only son of Salahuddin’s daughter, has done his B.Tech from Pakistan and puts up at Daharmuna, two kilometers from Salahuddin’s ancestral home.
