Kashmir : KTMF president put under house arrest ahead of anti-GST protest in Srinagar

Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers (KTMF) president Muhammad Yasin Khan was today placed under house arrest two days ahead of an anti-Goods and Services Tax (GST) protest in this summer capital.
A spokesperson of KTMF told UNI that Mr Khan was today placed under house arrest at his residence in HMT Zainakote in city outskirts this evening.
He said Mr Khan was scheduled to lead a protest against implementation of GST regime in the state on Tuesday.
However, he said the protest against the implementation of GST in the state will be held as per programme.

Meanwhile,Jammu and Kashmir Coordination Committee (JKCC) expressed their utter disbelief, shock and surprise over the unwarranted and uncalled for house arrest of its leaders, Dr. Mubeen Shah and Mohammad Yasin Khan (who were put under house arrest on Sunday).

Jammu and Kashmir Coordination Committee (JKCC), Convener, said in a statement to KNS that the members called an emergency meeting and said that it was most unfortunate that the business community and civil society, considered responsible and respectable in entire globe, is being subjected to humiliation and vendetta in the so called democracy here.
