Srinagar, January 25, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference (JKMC), Shabbir Ahmed Dar has said that India is making every effort to harass Kashmiri prisoners mentally and physically.
Shabbir Ahmed Dar addressing a public gathering in Bandipora deplored the authorities are sending Kashmiri political prisoners to Indian jails where they are kept with criminals who are always trying to harm these freedom lovers.
