Srinagar, May 18, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League (JKPL) has strongly condemned the arrest of its Chairman, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, by Indian police in Islamabad town. A JKPL spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the police arrested Mukhtar Ahmad Waza from his residence and lodged him in Sherbagh police station in Islamabad town.
