Provide medicare facilities to Aasiya, Fahmeeda: Family
UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Srinagar, Mar 6: Families of imprisoned chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Aasiya Andrabi and her close aide Fahmeeda Sofi on Sunday accused the Government of denying medical treatment to them and sought intervention of international human rights organizations.
“Despite ill-health, Aasiya and Fahmeeda were today shifted to Kot Balwal Jail in Jammu. If anything untoward happens to them, Government would be responsible for it. They have been constantly denied treatment on arbitrary grounds by the jail authorities and police in Jammu and Srinagar,” the families of Aasiya and Fahmeeda said while addressing a press conference at Press Enclave here.
Elaborating, Fahmeeda’s sister Hameeda claimed that she suffered a severe black motion in Police Station Ram Bagh last night. “She was crying due to immense pain in her abdomen. Ironically, the jail authorities denied her the medicare. Why is my sister being treated like a hardcore criminal? “she asked and broke down.
Accusing the Government of double standards, the aggrieved families urged the international human rights organizations to take cognizance of plight of the duo. Incidentally, Aasiya and Fahmeeda were arrested and subsequently booked under the Public Safety Act during last year’s summer unrest. They were last week brought to Srinagar from Kot Balwal in connection with hearing of their case.
