Police re-arrest Jamaat Spokesman

Srinagar: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir (JeI) vehemently condemns the re-arrest of its spokesperson Advocate Zahid Ali under a baseless case and termed it brute violation of human rights.

In a statement issued to media, JeI said, police today took Advocate Zahid Ali before Executive Magistrate in a case wherein the said authority had not said anything but entrapped him in another flimsy and fabricated case under section CrPC 107/151 which falls under the jurisdiction of police station Shaheed Gunj.

At the occasion police failed to produce any kind of evidence against the arrestee and captured him in another case with a malicious design, which depicts police is violating all human rights in Kashmir under their feet. Authorities have fixed 25th October, 2016 for next hearing of Zahid Ali’s case and shifted him to sub-jail Kothibagh.

JeI expresses its strong resentment over the arrest spree by police and other forces in Baramullah, Handwara, Pulwama, Srinagar and other localities. Forces have created war like situation by picking up of thousands of youth during crackdowns and nocturnal raids. Forces first crackdown the localities wherein they beat inmates ruthlessly and detain incalculable youth and posed them before the media as trouble mongers and violence instigators.

Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir (JeI) condemns this attitude of police and other forces agencies and terms it brute violation of human rights. At this occasion Jama’at appeals all international human rights bodies to take tangible notice of this atrocious behavior and come forward for the well being of Kashmiri people. (KNS)
