Mufti took to Twitter and wrote that she welcomed the court's judgement. She tweeted, "Welcome the judgement. High time we stop playing politics over a heinous crime where an 8 year old child was drugged, raped repeatedly & then bludgeoned to death."
Bureaucrat-turned-politician Shah Faesal through his counsel advocate Tassaduq Khwaja filed a PIL in the High Court here on Monday, seeking quashing of the order passed by state administration last week.
Faesal was flanked on stage by his four-year-old son, former JNUSU students’ union president Shehla Rashid and businessman Feroze Peerzada, who is likely to be the party’s candidate from North Kashmir for Lok Sabha polls.
Faesal has been travelling through different districts in the Valley, meeting and bringing “like-minded individuals” into the fold. Among them is former JNU Students’ Union vice-president Shehla Rashid.
Faesal, 35, has grabbed national headlines since he topped the civil services exam in 2009, becoming the first candidate from Kashmir to do so. As an IAS officer, he often spoke his mind on social media, engaging thus with thousands of young Kashmiris.
