Kashmiri girl was detained at IGI Airport on basis of ‘suspicion’: Nirmal Singh
New Delhi, June 18 : Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Saturday said that the police must have had detained the Kashmiri girl, who was travelling to Srinagar from Dhaka on the basis of suspicion.
“I am not aware of it.if the security forces had stopped them, they must have done it based on some suspicion. They did not get anything and she was released later on,” Singh told the media here.
A Kashmiri medical student was yesterday detained at the IGI Airport in Delhi after the security staff claimed they saw ‘carrying bomb’ written on her check-in luggage.
The girl, a resident of Rajbagh in Srinagar, was taken to the police station at the domestic airport and put through an hour-long joint interrogation by the police and intelligence agencies.
The girl and her three friends were travelling to Srinagar from Dhaka via Kolkata and New Delhi.
The parents alleged that luggage of the girls was checked at Bangladesh and Kolkata, but questions were only raised by officials at the Delhi airport.
The parents have taken up the issue with the Jammu and Kashmir government, which is in touch with the Delhi Police.
Earlier responding to a tweet about the detention of the girls, National Conference working president Omar Abdullah wrote, “What is the reason for their detention? Can you please share some more details.”
