Police thrash Samad Inqilabi inside Kathua Jail, alleges family


Family of resistance leader Abdul Samad Inqilabi Tuesday alleged that Inqilabi was beaten to pulp by police inside Kathua Jail in Jammu region.

Inqilabi was arrested by Army from the residence of popular slain militant commander Burhan Wani in Tral town of Southern Kashmir’s Pulwama district on July 6 this year and later handed over to local police.

After spending 13 days at Police Station Tral, he was shifted to Srinagar Central Jail and accordingly was booked under Public Safety Act and lodged into Kathua Jail.

His family members told news agency CNS that Inqilabi was ruthlessly beaten up inside the jail and to prove he is mentally unsound, jail authorities even kept him in mental hospital.

“The incident has occurred on November 14 this month,” the family members said adding they are eagerly waiting for his next hearing that falls on Dec 7 in Kupwara Session Court.

“There is a threat to his life and we appeal authorities to shift him to Srinagar Central Jail,” they said. (CNS)
