Srinagar, February 15, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference expressing deep concern in context of the recent report released by the territory’s Bar Association on the condition of prisoners in different jails of Jammu, has said that jail manual is not followed by jail administration.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the condition of pro-freedom detainees was extremely bad, and the inmates were dumped inside the jails beyond the intake capacity. As a result, the spokesman added, the detainees are facing both physical and psychological problems of varied natures.

The spokesman further said that basic medical facilities were being denied to the inmates, deliberately and they were not produced on time before the court on hearing dates, and their relatives were not allowed to meet them.

The spokesman appealed the international human rights organization to take notice of the Kashmiri prisoners lodged in the jails of the territory and outside. He said that the inmates were spending days under inhuman conditions in utter misery.

Meanwhile, the spokesman also denounced police action on protesters in Kupwara and Palhallan Pattan. He said the restriction imposed by the forces on the movement of people had exposed the so-called democratic claims of Indian government.
