Asiya Andrabi, chief of the women’s radical roup ‘Dukhtaran-e-Milat’ (Daughters of the Faith) was on Friday detained by the police in Srinagar.
The police said Asiya Andrabi was picked up by policemen from her house in the Soura locality.
“She is in the women’s police station at Rambagh”, a senior police officer told IANS.
Asiya had called for a protest march on Friday, against the killings of three youth, whose bullet-ridden bodies were found on Monday from an apple orchard in the Pattan area in Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
The police have lodged many FIRs in the past against Asiya, including on charges of displaying a Pakistani flag and stoking anti-national feelings.
