Coming down heavily on state government for ‘unleashing a fresh arrest spree across Kashmir’ Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front leader Wednesday expressed concern over the condition of Kashmiri separatist leaders and youth languishing in different jails of India.

According to CNS, JKLF workers led by Zonal President Noor Muhammad Kalwal Wednesday staged a peaceful sit-in at Pratap Park Srinagar against the random arrests of youth and ill-treatment meted out to Kashmiri inmates in Central Jail Srinagar and other jails of India.

Talking to reporters, Kalwal appealed Amnesty International and human rights organizations to take serious note of the obtaining situation in Jammu and Kashmir and use their influence to protect human lives.

He said that all across Kashmir innocent youth are arrested by police. “Court verdicts are not honoured. State is doing what suits to it. Kashmir youth have been implicated in false cases and are rotting in the cells outside jails,” Kalwal said.

Kalwal said that two Kashmiri youth Shiekh Omar and Shiekh Farhat are languishing in Kolkatta jail and are not released. “Some Kashmiri leaders have been lodged in Jaipur, Tihar and Jodhpur jails. The condition of inmates is critical. Qasim Faktoo is in hospital. Abdul Qayoom Mir, Muhammad Ayoub Dar, Shiekh Nazir Ahmed, Masrat Aalam, the brother of fonder of the JKLF, Zahoor Ahmed Bhat are all languishing in jails and the continuous detention is taking a toll on their health,” he said.

He said that a peaceful agitation will be started if arrest spree is not stopped and Kashmiri innocent prisoners are not released. Kalwal lashed out at the Government for harassing jail visitors including women flock.
