Shift Kashmiri Prisoners To Valley: Geelani

‘Book Kot Bhalwal Jail Superintendent without any delay’

SRINAGAR:  Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani has expressed his grief over the demise of Pakistani prisoner Sanaullah and has appealed people to protest against the brutal killing and offer funeral prayer in absentia after Friday prayers.

In a statement, Syed Ali Geelani while paying tribute to Sanaullah, extended his sympathy with the bereaved family and prayed for eternal peace to the departed soul. Terming the murderous assault on the prisoner a pre- planed, politically motivated and an act of reprisal, Geelani demanded an exemplary and stringent action against then SP Jail Rajni Sehgal and added an investigation should be initiated against erring officer.

Geelani expressed concern and apprehensions with respect to safety of Kashmiri prisoners in Indian jails and impressed that their safety should be guaranteed and demanded that all these detainees be shifted to valley forthwith.

Geelani said that recent episodes of murderous assault and lapses in the security has gripped the Valley with anxiety hence all the detainees languishing in Jammu jails also need to be shifted to Valley.

Syed Ali Geelani said that we had warned about the possible attacks on Pakistani and Kashmiri detainees after the sad episode in Kotlakhpat jail Pakistan and sought proper arrangement with respect to safety measures for the detainees but the callous and careless approach of jail authorities led to the death of Sanaullah in Kotbhalwal.

Geelani while referring to the death of Surubjeet Singh in Kotlakhpat jail and added that it was a result of defective and loose security system and added that murderous assault on Sanaullah was pre planned, result of political vendetta and demanded to book Rajni Sehgal for her malicious track record against detainees.

He added that ever since she was appointed in Sub Jail Kotbhalwal, she has terrorised and harassed the prisoners and her arrogance and prejudice against prisoners led to the brutal death of Sanaullah.
