Terming the CID report regarding central jail Srinagar as most illogical, Joint Resistance Leadership on Wednesday said that following recent escape of an inmate from SMHS hospital, police have now started penalizing political prisoners and other inmates, especially at central jail Srinagar.
The spokesman quoting JRL leaders said that “after a series of false and concocted reports by some journalists, bias Indian media channels and papers, dozens of innocent political inmates have been shifted to outside valley jails but to tighten noose against other inmates ridiculous reports are being framed and spread through media and other means.
JRL said CID has today released a report in media in which it has said that central jail Srinagar is being used as main recruitment hub by militants and youth is being selected and lured from here to join the armed struggle.
Terming CID report as blaming traditional Ameer-I-Zindan institution for all mess and terming it as a parallel administration running and facilitating militancy as a blatant lie, JRL said that from Mahaz-I-Raishumari days in 1960’s, Ameer-I-Zindan institution has been a forum facilitating good relations between jail authorities and inmates and often this forum has benefited Jail authorities to run jails smoothly but today this forum is also being slandered to inflict more trouble on Kashmiri inmates.
JRL said that authorities are telling us that Srinagar central jail and people lodged there are promoting, recruiting and facilitating militancy from this jail.
JRL said that one inmate escaped from SMHS but five others who were with him at the same hospital returned back to jail on their own. Nobody is discussing this aspect of the story but instead of that those who chose to return back are now being victimized.
