Bar missive to Int’l bodies

SRINAGAR:-J&K High Court Bar Association Srinagar Tuesday condemned the prolonged and “illegal incarceration” of separatist leaders, who were arrested ahead of Narendra Modi’s visit to Kashmir and since then are languishing in different police stations in Srinagar and outside.

“The aforesaid leaders after their arrest have been booked in cases registered against them under section 107 CrPC and ever since from their arrest, have not been produced before any court of Magistrate and have been kept in illegal detention in various police lockups without even been allowed to meet their friends, relatives and kith and kin,” a statement from Kashmir’s apex lawyers body said this evening.

“The Bar Association feels that the government, its police and other agencies, are labouring under some misconception by keeping these leaders in detention though they know it well that they have tried these methods and tactics in the past also but have not succeeded in their nefarious designs of stopping them from raising their voice against the suppression and oppression of people of Kashmir by Indian might and are determined to continue their struggle of achieving freedom from Indian Occupational forces.”
