“During the uprising of 2010, after evading arrest for months, my mother was finally detained from a hideaway in Srinagar. Soon after, the authorities prepared a dossier, planning to shift her to a jail in Jammu, miles away from her home. However, the doctor who examined my mother’s health declared her unhealthy and recommended that she be taken to a hospital instead. A few hours had passed when we came to know that the Omar Abdullah led government went the extra mile and compelled a different doctor to declare her absolutely healthy.”
