Srinagar: Strongly condemning the continuous arrests in Kashmir, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has said that even all the jails have been filled, and New Delhi is busy in intimidating their political opponents by using police and other government forces.
A spokesperson of JKDFP in a statement strongly condemned the acts of prolonging the detention of its ailing chairman, Shabir Shah languishing in Tihar jail along with other pro-freedom leaders and activists.
“The investigating agencies have failed to prove anything against Shabir Shah so they have started to use courts to prolong his illogical detention despite his serious ailments. These courts issue long dates for hearings hence denying justice to Shabir Shah and other Kashmiri political prisoners. The same story is being repeated by courts ever since Shabir Shah was arrested by ED in “fake, fabricated” and already decided cases, in July 2017. The irony is that Shabir Shah is not being provided proper and suitable medical treatment despite repeated requests which has endangered his life and which is giving sleepless nights to his nears and dears.”
The JKDFP spokesman strongly condemned the continuous “arrest spree” and said that these are attempts to curb and crush the deep-rooted political aspirations of the people of Kashmir.
