Srinagar: Lawyers Club Kashmir Thursday condemned that arrest of renowned lawyer and its district president Pulwama Advocate Bashmir Ahmed Rather.
President Lawyers Club Kashmir told CNS that Advocate Bashir Ahmed Rather was arrested by Special Operation Group part of Jammu and Kashmir Pulwama from his Kakapora residence and till date nobody has been allowed to meet him.
Targeting lawyers and detaining them without any reason speaks volumes. The police action is condemnable. If he is not released, Lawyers Club Kashmir will observe indefinite hunger strike, Qadri said.
One can imagine the fate of common people when Lawyers are not spared, he added. (CNS)
