“Jails have been turned into torture centers where respect for life and human dignity stands at its lowest,” Malik said in a statement.

Malik said that “the judicial remand of three ailing women inmates Syeda Asiya Andrabi, Nahida Nasreen and Fahmida Sofi who are languishing in Tihar Jail has been extended by thirty more days.”

“The proceeding of the case is being done through video conferencing and height of the apathy is that despite being ill, these inmates are not being provided with any sort of medical aid or facility,” he said.

JKLF chief said that similarly JKLF leaders and activists’ lifer Nazir Ahmad Sheikh along with Siraj Ud din Mir, Zahoor Ahmad Butt, Abdul Rashid Magloo, Assadullah Sheikh and Ghulam Nabi Kashmiri who are languishing in outside Kashmir Jails under PSA are also being denied proper medical facilities and rulers are using every tactic to prolong their incarceration.

He said that many young boys including Aadil Siraj Misgar, Davood Fayaz Zargar, Juwaiz Hassan Khan, Arooj Aafaq Bhat , Iqbal Ahmad Khan, Arsalan Mushtaq Bangri , Seerat ul Hassan , Sheikh Khalid Rasool , Imran Nabi Wani , Owaise Muneer Bhat , Danish Rahim Mir, Sameer Ahmad Khan , Danish Ayoub Badoo, Musawir Ahmad Bhat, Bashir Ahmad Bhat and Moeen Mushtaq Wani who are facing a concocted trail of DySp lynching are also facing this apathy as police and authorities are using every method to prolong their incarceration and inflict more harm to them and their families.
