Dukhtaran-i-Millat Spokesperson Rifat Fatima said in a statement that Aasiya had been booked under draconian law PSA for the second consecutive time in the past seven months. “Soon after the High Court quashed her detention under the PSA, the puppet authority booked her again,” she said.

Terming the continued detention of Aasiya Andrabi as political vendetta, Fatima said, “Aasiya has been booked for her political stand on Kashmir.”  Fatima added that administration was flouting the court orders by detaining Aasiya illegally on malafide grounds.

She urged the Amnesty International to intervene and impress upon India to release Andrabi. “It is the responsibility of Amnesty International and other international bodies to press India to release Andrabi and put an end to human rights violations in the territory,” Rifat said.
