Hajin families seek release of sons
IMRAN MUZAFFAR PARRAY
Srinagar, Nov 29: The families of two Kashmiri youth who were arrested by police in Madhya Pradesh last year and are currently lodged in Srinagar and Udhampur jails respectively have pleaded their innocence saying their sons were ‘falsely implicated.’
“Our sons, Me’raj-ud-Din Shergujri and Showkat Ahmad Hakeem had gone with a religious congregation to Bhopal, but they were arrested on December 31 on false grounds,” the families of both the youth of Hajin Bandipora told Greater Kashmir.
According to Ghulam Qadir, his son Me’raj-ud-Din was later shifted to Srinagar jail and is presently serving detention there while as Showkat Ahmad is lodged in Udhampur jail.
“The jail authorities had assured their immediate release, however, the duo is still languishing in the detention centres,” Ghulam Qadir said.
According to him, a local Court granted bail to Me’raj-ud-Din and Showkat Ahmad, but the authorities didn’t release them. “Both were brought to the local police station for release, but were again detained for unknown reasons,” Ghulam Qadir said. He said, Me’raj-ud-Din used to sell milk at a shop which is now being run by his sister.
According to locals, Me’raj has nine sisters out of whom only two have been married. “He is the sole son and source of income for the family,” they added.
Pleading their son’s innocence, the family of Showkat urged the authorities to release him at an earliest. “After Showkat’s detention our family has completely shattered,” his father Ghulam Ahmad told Greater Kashmir.
