Govt Vindictive Of Hurriyat (G) Activists: Geelani
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 3: Family members of the incarcerated Hurriyat Conference (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar on Wednesday said that they have been running from pillar to post to get him released on bail.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Akbar’s family members said that his wife is seriously ill and doctors have advised them to shift her to Delhi for treatment. Akbar’s wife is reportedly suffering from cancer.
“We met all the concerned officers and apprised them about the deteriorating health of our mother. Officers expressed their inability to release him and told us that decision in this regard can be taken by people in Delhi,” said Akbar’s son.
He said they have decided to rush their mother to Delhi on Thursday where she would be undergoing an emergency surgery on Friday.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani has expressed dismay over authorities not releasing Akbar on humanitarian grounds. “This is a gross human rights violation that the wife of a man is dying with fatal disease and she has to rely on her young kid to accompany her to Delhi for treatment,” Geelani told KNS, adding that Government has been vindictive of the Hurriyat (G) activists.
“We had asked them (Government) for release of Akbar on humanitarian grounds, but they turned a deaf ear. But this is not new to we people. We are now accustomed to such kind of behavior,” Geelani added.
