GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 31: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani has condemned the continuous detention of conglomerate’s general secretary Masrat Alam Bhat.
In a statement, Geelani termed Alam’s detention in the Cargo Camp here as "political vendetta." “He has been lodged in the infamous SOG camp to settle political scores,” he added.
“The Government and police are violating the law while dealing with the detainees including the pro-freedom leaders. We are worried about Masrat’s welfare,” Geelani said.
“We want to maintain that Masrat was only evading arrest in the larger interest of the ongoing movement. He is a person who has been at the forefront,” Geelani said.
He accused the Government of launching a crackdown on the conglomerate to suppress the ongoing movement. “The government is harassing relatives of our leaders and activists. This is a grave human rights violation and a condemnable act,” he said.
Geelani said police had arrested sons of the conglomerate’s district president Baramulla Abdul Subhan Wani and tehsil president Sopore Abdul Ghani Bhat. “Government has waged a war against our cadre across the Valley,” Geelani added.
