Hurriyat (M) concerned over arrest of youth
Srinagar, Feb 22: Hurriyat (M) has expressed serious concern over, what it called, indiscriminate arrest of innocent youth across the Valley, terming it highly condemnable.
“The police and other security agencies were conducting nocturnal raids and arresting youth across the Valley,” said Hurriyat spokesman in a statement, adding they (youth) were jailed under false charges.
He alleged that the police had arrested dozens of youth including Muhammad Shafi Bhat, Tariq Ahmad Sheikh, Ghulam Ahmad Mir, Ghulam Nabi Marazi, Abdul Majeed Mir, Koka Mistry, Raja Bashir Khan, Ghulam Muhammad Mir, and Ghulam Qadri Sheikh at Kreeri, Pattan, in north Kashmir on ‘false’ charges of stone-pelting. He said such ‘repressive’ steps by the Government could not weaken the ongoing resistance movement.
Meanwhile, Jammu Kashmir Salvation Front has condemned the continued detention of its ailing chairman, Zaffar Akbar Bhat despite court orders for his release. He is presently lodged in JIC, Humhama.
Given his deteriorating health, Zaffar, according to party statement, was again taken to PCR hospital here for treatment.
“Zaffar was released from Kot Bhalwal Jail, Jammu, after nine months, but re-arrested by the CIK personnel, and lodged in JIC, Jammu. He was recently shifted to JIC, Humhama,” said the party spokesman, demanding release of all detainees.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) has condoled the demise of the uncle of Bashir Ahmad Chingal, mother of Abdul Rouf, and father of journalist, Tahir Mohi-ud-Din, praying for the deceased and sympathizing with the bereaved.
