SRINAGAR, July 31: Prof Saifuddin Soz, former union minister today reiterated that he is not a free man and continues under house arrest.
In a statement he said, “Today, I went to see my ailing sister at Gulbarg Colony, Hyderpora, Srinagar. Since the police would not allow me to travel without its vehicle, two PSOS accompanied me."
Soz added that when he returned home, the police produced and released a video showing that he was a free man. "This version of the police is nothing more than a white lie," he said.
"Meanwhile, I tried to go out of my premises at 12.35 pm today to see my daughter in the neighbourhood but the police did not allow me to go out! I confirm the fact that I am under ‘house-arrest’ and I cannot go out, at all, " he said.
Soz stated that the government version that he was a free man is wrong. "I do not know why government has resorted to such underhand means. I have not violated any law of the land, yet I am under ‘detention’.”
“My detention shows how civil liberties stand suppressed in Kashmir,” he said.
