Srinagar, August 16 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior Congress leader, Saifuddin Soz has said that he continues to be under house arrest for the past one year, contrary to what the IIOJ&K regime claims.
The Supreme Court of India on July 29 closed a habeas corpus petition, filed by Soz’s wife, after the local administration told the court that the senior Congress leader was “neither in detention nor under house arrest. But when media persons went to meet Soz, he was found to be confined within the walls of his home, restricted by the police personnel, deployed outside his house, from moving out.
Soz kept shouting that the Supreme Court was lied to. “I am not a free man,” he told the media persons who had gathered to verify the IIOJ&K administration’s claims.
Speaking to the media, Soz rubbished the claim, saying his condition is still the same as it was on August 5, 2019: he continues to be under house arrest. “Nothing has changed since then. I was under house arrest on August 5, 2019 and I continue to be under house arrest now,” he said.
