New Delhi: Terming them “baseless”, the Indian Army on Sunday (August 18) rejected two specific claims made by activist and Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement leader Shehla Rashid on the ground situation in Kashmir.

These were among the 10 allegations Rashid levelled in a series of tweets.

Rashid tweeted on Sunday that the armed forces were “entering houses at night, picking up boys, ransacking houses, deliberately spilling rations on the floor, mixing oil with rice.”

Further, she wrote that in Shopian, four men were “called into the Army camp and “interrogated” (tortured). A mic was kept close to them so that the entire area could hear them scream, and be terrorised.” This, she wrote, “created an environment of fear in the entire area.”

In response, the Indian Army said the allegations were “baseless and rejected,” and that “unverified” and “fake news” was being “spread by inimical elements and organisations to incite unsuspecting population.”

Soon after, twitter trended the hashtag #ArrestShehlaRashid
