Srinagar: Police in Kashmir has in a tweet rebutted the charges that two sons of Former Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai have been booked under the Public Safety Act(PSA) and clarified that they have been already arrested for raising anti-national slogans during the funeral of their father in Kupwara. Kashmir Zone Police on its Twitter handle wrote 'both sons of Late Sehrai & 4 others have been *arrested for raising *anti-national slogans during the funeral. But, they haven't been booked under PSA. Please don't spread the rumour.' The police clarification came after PDP President and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in a tweet said ' PSA is GoI's go-to method for every problem. Latest example being Ashraf Shehrai's sons who lost their father in custody due to inadequate medical care and have been arrested.'
