SRINAGAR Lauding the courage and resilience of its leaders for completing one year of imprisonment in New Delhis Tihar Jail, Hurriyat Conference (M) on Wednesday said even after passage of one year, NIA has failed to prove anything against them.
A Hurriyat (M) spokesperson in a statement said its media advisor Advocate Shahidul Islam and others Hurriyat leaders including Shabir Ahmed Shah, Altaf Ahmed Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Mehraj-u-din Kalwal, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Shahid Yousuf and Zahoor Ahmed Watali continue to face illegal confinement, which is nothing but political vendetta.
Shahid-Ul-Islam has been lodged in ward 3 of Tihar jail as a high risk category prisoner, the statement said adding that being a diabetic, Shahid is facing multiple health problems as he continues to lose body weight which is a matter of grave concern.
It said that the condition of other leaders is also quite bad and their health has also deteriorated as basic medical supplies are denied to them.
The spokesperson said that all of them have been kept with criminals in the notorious jail and as such, there is always a risk to their lives. The jail authorities are deliberately denying basic facilities to Kashmiri prisoners to make them suffer amid the scorching heat, he said.
