January 13, 2018

Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Gilani has expressed serious concerns over the deteriorating health condition of illegally detained Kashmiris lodged in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar said those lodged in Tihar Jail have not committed any offense. They are political prisoners suffering because of political vendetta.

He regretted that most of the people particularly youth who were arrested during the post July 8, 2016 uprising in Kashmir have been tortured in various police stations, lodged in different jails and their detention being prolonged on one pretext or the other.
