SRINAGAR: J&K High Court Bar Association has described the FEMA notice issued to JKLF Chairman, Mohammad Yasin Malik and two others, by the Enforcement Directorate, in a 17-year-old case “contrary to law and aimed at only to tease, torture and humiliate pro-freedom Kashmiri leadership and their activists”.
In a statement issued here, the association said the notice has been issued
in a case pending trial in a court at Jammu, in which the court has granted bail to the accused, after being prima-facie satisfied that they are not involved in the commission of the crime. The association also condemned the beating of six members of a family, by soldiers, in Habber Lassipora village of Khag Tehsil Beerwah, in which four of them sustained injuries and had to be rushed for medical treatment and the ransacking of houses and beating of innocent civilians, in Hardu Dalwan of Chari Sharief and Devas Khahipora of Arizal area on October 5, and October 13, 2017.
The statement added that the association demands that all those, who are responsible for “these barbaric and inhuman acts”, should be brought to book and punished under law and the people who have been made the target of the brute force, be provided safety and security, so that they are not subjected to any kind of torture or beating at the hands of forces in future.
