Srinagar, March 07, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front-R (JKLF-R), Farooq Ahmad Dar has expressed concern over the maltreatment of detainees in various prisons of India and the territory. Farooq Ahmad Dar in a statement issue in Srinagar said that the jail authorities are treating them inhumanly and were entirely overlooking the aspects of human rights.
He said that the recent incident in the Amphalla jail was the offshoot of the inhuman behaviour of the authorities. A prisoner from Pakistan ended his life. He also served his term. He said such behaviour of the authorities was against the International laws.
He said that the country like India, which was claiming to be the world’s largest democracy, was involved in such inhuman acts. These acts are really a stigma on the face of so-called largest democracy, he added.
He appealed to the international human rights organizations to visit the territory and monitory the human rights violations by the Indian troops and police personnel. Taking notice of the harassment of Kashmiri students in various states of India, Farooq Ahmad Dar said that it was pathetic that the students had been victimized and expelled from the university.
