News reports said that Mujahid Sehrai and Rashid Sehrai have been arrested in connection with a false case registered against them on 6 May 2021 at the police station in Tekkipora-Sogam, the native area of the martyred APHC leader.
In this regard, the reports said that while taking the body of the martyred APHC leader Ashrai Sehrai to Tekkipora-Sogam graveyard in Kupwara for burial on 6 May, some people were found raising pro-freedom slogans. The video of the same had gone viral on social media. Accordingly a case was registered against 20 people found raising the slogans.
Earlier, two close relatives of Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai were also arrested by police in connection with the same false case.
The occupation authorities, after systematically killing Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai in jail, are now victimizing and punishing the family for espousing the freedom cause.
It is in this backdrop that Sehrai’s two sons and his relatives have been arrested by police.
