Two days after the Press Club of India had refused to allow tukde tukde gang member Kavita Krishnan to show propaganda video on Kashmir in their premises, few screenshots allegedly showing email exchanges among the group members are doing the rounds on social media. The emails show how the left-wing activists are planning to go to Kashmir, and also to send eminent personalities to the state.
Screenshots of three emails, which seem to be from the same conversation, are being circulated, and the email exchange seems to be after Kavita Krishna returned from Kashmir. In one email, Kavita writes to her colleague Suresh and others that after her team’s return from Kashmir, more people are planning to go there. She suggests that after some team members safely leave Kashmir with any material they have collected, future teams visiting Srinagar should consider meeting police and demand to know the detail of ‘arrests’. Krishnan also suggests that some heavyweight eminent people may try to go to police and demand the detail of ‘arrests’.

She also suggests that people visiting Kashmir should do so without telling anyone in advance, and they just walk out of the airport after landing.
In the next two emails, the team discusses probable eminent persons who can go to Kashmir and demand detail of arrests from police. One Rakesh Shukla suggests Justice Shah could be approached, and asks about Chandru J, probably referring to former Madras high court judge K Chandru, who is known for his anti-BJP, anti-RSS views and have opposed the abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35A in a recent interview. Justice Shah might refer to former chief justice of Delhi High Court Justice A P Shah, who has teamed up with left-wing leaders like Prashant Bhushan and Harsh Mander in the campaign against the Modi government.
Rakesh Shukla also informs that they have a list of other retired judges who could be approached, suggesting that although politically weakened, the left-liberals have still strong root in the judiciary.
Responding to this mail, Kavita Krishnan writes that she thought about people like Kapil Kak, the former Air Vice-Marshal of Indian Air Force, who has opposed the government’s decision to fully integrate Kashmir into India. Krishnan suggests that ex-military, Pandits etc should be approached, and gives the go-ahead for Justice Shah.
The authenticity of the screenshots can’t be verified. If true, it gives an insight on how the tukde tukde gang has still support from several eminent persons including retired judges and senior military officers. Going the video produced by Kavita Krishnan’s team which was uploaded on Youtube after Press Club refused it to be shown in their premises, it can be concluded that the activists will conduct more visits to Kashmir to produce more propaganda material, and will also try to use eminent names in their campaign for the Pakistan backed separatists.
