To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has received about the detention of Mrs. Assia Andrabi, her husband, and baby daughter, at Srinagar airport in Kashmir by Indian security forces on 5 February; if he will ask the Indian authorities for information about where Mrs. Andrabi, the leader of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, a voluntary women's organisation in Kashmir, is detained; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
We have received no previous representations concerning Mrs. Andrabi and her family. From our initial inquiries we understand that they are being held in Srinagar. The high commission in New Delhi has requested details of the whereabouts of Mrs. Andrabi, her husband arid daughter, from the Indian authorities. I will write to the hon. Member once the response of the Indian authorities has been received.728W
