SRINAGAR Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front on Tuesday said that the health condition of its chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik was deteriorating in Tihar Jail, New Delhi.
In a statement issued here, a spokesman of JKLF said Yasin Malik is suffering from an acute infection in one of his eyes from the last two weeks.
He condemned the attitude of jail authorities including its medical team, accusing them of negligence.
Yasin Malik is not being provided appropriate medical facilities in the jail due to which his health is deteriorating, he said and warned against continued ill-treatment to Malik. JKLF has the capacity to launch a political campaign all over the world against India for their repressive policies in Jammu Kashmir, the spokesman added.
The spokesman appealed international and local human rights organizations like UNHRC, Amnesty International, Asia Watch and human rights defenders to take notice of his health condition and impress upon India to provide the basic human rights of a politically jailed leader like Yasin Malik.
