Malik condemns nocturnal raids
Srinagar: Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik has condemned nocturnal raids in villages and towns of south and north Kashmir.
In a statement issued here today, Malik alleged that during recent nocturnal crackdown at Mochwara Shupian forces went berserk and tortured men, women, children and elders of whole village, vandalized and destroyed residential houses, vehicles and peoples properties.
“After the imposition of Governor’s rule in Jammu Kashmir, oppression has increased alarmingly and it has in fact beaten all previous records,” Malik said.
He said that recent UN report on Kashmir has raised hopes among Kashmiris and this report now needs a serious follow up.
While condemning the plight of Kashmiri inmates languishing in different jails of India including Tihar Jail and the jails of Jammu Kashmir, JKLF chairman said that thousands of young and old are being terrorized and tortured in jails and police along with the civil authorities are employing every tactic to prolong their incarceration.
“Recently an inmate Ghulam Hassan Malik @ Noor Khan breathed his last in Kot-balwal Jail. This dying human was tied to a chain even on death bed which speaks volumes about the treatment meted out to prisoners,” Malik added.
