A six member delegation of Awami Itehad Party (AIP) led by its president and MLA Langate Er Rasheed, today visited Kot Bhalwal Jail, Jammu, and had detailed deliberation with detainees.
"After interaction the deputation observed that the detainees are not being provided adequate medical facilities and face many other basic problems. The health of Mushtaq Ahmad Mir of Check Nutnussa Kupwara and Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Pandith of Hamray has deteriorated due to improper treatment," a spokesman of the AIP, in a statement today, said.
He condemned the government for imprisoning a juvenile Sahil Ahmad Sheikh S/o Late Ghulam Muhammad Sheikh of Noor Bagh Pamposh Colony, Srinagar, in Kot Bhalwal jail. "It is a shame for the government that despite making tall claims not to send juveniles to jail, Sahil is feeling highly frustrated in Kotbalwal."
"Similarly lodging two elderly respectable citizens namely Molvi Abdul Qayoom and Saif-ud-din Bagwan from Kishtawar is shameful act and deserves strong condemnation. A shining boy namely Rahamtullah from Doda who had qualified for Medical seat lies also unattended in the Kot Bhalwal Jail and thus his carrier stands ruined, " he said and sought immediate release of prominent pro freedom activists including Mehrj-ud-din Tantray of Palhalan, Mushtaq Ahmad Hurra of Hamray, Muhammad Rafiq Ganaie of Srinagar, Abdul Ahad Para of Kupwara and Ghulam Mohi-ud-din Pandith of Hamray.
