They are being provided with sub- standard food and medical needs of these detainees within the prison system have been neglected. Both political and criminal are treated with same yard-stick and no system of segregation exists, said Geelani in a statement to KNS.
Geelani expressed dismay over snails pace process in judiciary and said state administration is subjecting them to political reprisal and on the pretext of preventive detention prisoners are detained in jails.

He expressed his concern and anguish over the silence maintained by international organisations and said they are not taking any serious note of this lawlessness.
