JKLF (R) leaders condemn Gautam’s arrest, deportation
Srinagar, May 30: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (R) chairman, Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bitta Karatey and vice-chairman, Javid Ahmad Mir, have condemned the arrest of human rights activist Gautam Navlakha from Srinagar Airport by police and his deportation to New Delhi.
The Front leaders, in a joint statement, said by putting curbs on the activities of the rights activists, the Government was trying to put a cover over its ‘human rights abuses’ in Kashmir. They alleged such steps belied the India’s claims of democracy.
The Front leaders alleged that the Government was itself responsible for disturbing peace in the State.
The Front leaders paid tributes to Aasia and Neelofar on their secondary martyrdom anniversary. “Though two years have passed, the perpetrators of Shopian double rape and murder are still at large. The agencies are trying to shield them,” they said.
Meanwhile, a delegation of Front leaders on Monday visited the residence of Biscoe School student Ali Muhammad Shakir, who was drowned in Jhelum and sympathized with the bereaved family.
