Bar Sets Up ‘Free Of Cost’ Legal Aid Team At Srinagar Court


SRINAGAR:Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association Srinagar on Wednesday discussed certain issues concerning the people who have suffered pellet injuries and are going to lose their eye sight for ever, if not treated in time in the ophthalmology department of the SMHS Hospital, Srinagar.

The Bar members said that the forces have raided and ransacked the house of Bilal Ahmad Wani, Advocate and have also beaten Mohammad Afzal Rather, Advocate of Pattan and have also broken his right arm.

The members condemned the said brute action of the Police and decided to request the J&K Chief Justice to ensure safety and security of lawyers, who have always been hounded by the barbaric forces, as they support the freedom struggle of the people of Kashmir, a statement issued by Bar said this evening.

The meeting was attended by top Bar members who decided to request the members to “follow the program of the pro-freedom leadership in letter and spirit and to come to the courts only when there is a break”.

“It was also decided that M/s Mohammad Ashraf Bhat, Advocate and Nasir Shalla, Advocate shall remain available to the people in the lower court for providing legal aid and assistance to them, free of cost,” the statement said.
