Takes strong notice of police’s misbehavior with advocate Javed Hubbi
Srinagar: Kashmir High Court Bar Association on Monday strongly condemns the arrest of advocate Babar Hussain of Doda and termed invoking of draconian PSA against him as “highly deplorable.” Babar has been lodged in Jammu’s Kotebalwal Jail.
The lawyers’ body also condemns the arrest of advocate Mohammad Shafi Reshi. The lawyers’ body also took a strong notice of ‘misbehaviour’ of police with advocate Javed Hubbi of Budgam. Javed’s father Dr G.M.Hubbi has been arrested and kept in detention in Police Station Chrari Sharief one week back.
When Advocate Javed went to see him in police station he was not only returned but also humiliated by the SHO and his staff, the lawyers’ body said in a statement. “This shows the lack of respect of the police towards the noble fraternity of lawyers working in judiciary to uphold the rule of law and respect for human rights in the state,” it said. The lawyers’ body also reiterated commitment to uphold the dignity of Bar members and fight for the rights of the people of the J&K.
The association also condemned the killing spree during the past two months and injuring thousands of youth and children by firing bullets and lethal pellets on them “in violation of the international humanitarian law and covenants governing the safety of citizens living in conflict zones.”
The lawyers’ body also appealed the UN Bodies and members of International community to intervene and impress upon Indian Government to end the “dark night of oppression” in Kashmir. It also condemns the illegal detention of political leaders like Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Mohammad Ashraf Sherai and other leader of Hurriyat Conference.
“In order to bring an end to the genocide going on in the State of J&K, the Bar association once again decided to apprise the World community including the United Nation Human Rights Council, Amnesty International, Asia Watch and other Human Rights Organizations of the World about the happenings in Kashmir and play their constructive role in stopping these abuses in Kashmir.”
