EJAC condemns assault on Kashmiri prisoners in Tihar

Srinagar: Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) president, Abdul Qayoom Wani Thursday condemned the ‘murderous attack’ on Kashmiri prisoners.
In a press statement, Wani said protecting the life of prisoners and treating them humanly is the prime duty of jail authorities.
“These incidents speak volumes about discriminatory attitude of authorities of Tihar jail which needs to be condemned,” he said
Wani urged upon the state government especially Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for personal interference in the issue so that such type of incidents may not occur in future.
Wani demanded an independent probe into this ‘shameful incident’ to ensure the safety of Kashmiri prisoners so that “the families in general and the prisoners in particular will not feel the sense of insecurity”.
