NC expresses gratitude to court for ‘protecting individual freedom of its party functionaries’
Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Monday expressed gratitude to the high court for enabling the liberty of its leaders serving ‘illegal detention/house arrest since August last year’.
Party’s spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar in a statement issued on Monday said the right to liberty is one of the most fundamental rights, which he said were being denied to the party leaders on unreasonable and unjustifiable grounds.
He said that the party had taken the legal course to ensure release of its party functionaries who had been detained in various in-house, out-house detention centers across J&K illegally.
Imran further added that the release of incarcerated party colleagues would not have been possible but for the positive intervention of the High Court.
“Since the liberty of our leaders under detention has been secured and the meetings called in the previous week were successfully held, the habeas corpus petitions filed by the President and Vice President were disposed off by the Hon’ble Court today. We are indebted to the honorable High Court admitting the appeals and other successive measures taken by the court in this regard. We have throughout maintained that we will fight the injustices committed on us legally and constitutionally,” the party said.
The party spokesperson also expressed gratitude to the party’s counsel Advocate Sharik Reyaz for ably and successfully representing the party in the honorable Court.
