Police indulging in hooliganism: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 26: The Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, on Monday alleged that the state police were indulging in sheer hooliganism, feeling no qualms in defying court orders and tearing into shreds the Constitution and law.
“Police have been given a free hand to indulge in hooliganism. They are not only harassing the political leaders and activists but also the common civilians,” said Geelani, according to a Hurriyat statement.
Geelani alleged that the police had fired upon Manzoor Ahmad Mir unjustifiably, injuring him grievously.
“Manzoor is undergoing treatment in SKIMS, where I enquired about his health during my visit to the hospital for medical check-up,” he said, adding “the police in Sopur and Varmul are arresting and harassing the youth especially students for participating in Hurriyat public meetings. Police officers are openly warning youth against participating in Geelani’s public meetings. They have given an ultimatum to the students studying in colleges in Sopur to leave the town and seek admission in other colleges or else be ready to face consequences.”
Geelani alleged that a youth Javid Ahmad Munshi of Methan, Chanpora, was arrested in March and detained under PSA in Udhampur Jail only for running a Qurani Darasgah.
“Another youth Nawaz Ahmad of Hadapora, Islamabad, was detained under PSA in Kot Bilwal Jail, Jammu, on similar charges,” he said, adding that the court had issued his release orders one month ago but he is still languishing in JIC Islamabad.
Geelani has strongly condemned the slapping of PSA on Muhammad Yousuf Mir for the fourth time and flayed the government for not presenting Masrat Alam Bhat before court on his hearing.
Geelani is addressing a public meeting on April 27, Tuesday, at Shopian Chowk in South Kashmir.
