Geelani Seeks Release of Ayaz Akbar

‘His spouse is ailing’

SRINAGAR: Demanding immediate release of Ayaz Akbar, Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani Monday said his spouse has been advised by doctors to go through an emergency operation.  He said that release of Akbar is a humanitarian issue.

“Ayaz Akbar’s spouse is suffering from a disease and is going to be operated. I don’t beg but demand that Ayaz Akbar should be released so that he can take care of his wife”, Geelani told KNS. He said that doctors have advised her to go for an emergency operation to avoid a major health risk.

He said that lawyers of Hurriyat had approached Tehsildar with an application for bailing out Akbar. “But Tehsildar fled away to avoid release of Akbar,” he alleged.

Meanwhile, family members of Hurriyat (G) leader Peer Saiffullah have expressed concern over his deteriorating health. They alleged that Saifullah is not being allowed to visit doctor and is continued under house arrest.

He said that tactics used to suppress the voices of people would prove always futile.  (KNS)
