Joint Resistance Leadership today said that the police is trying to frame a specially-abled person and asked international human rights bodies to take a note on the gruesome human rights violation in the state.
The open letter to the international bodies by the Joint resistance leadership said that Tanveer Ahmad Waar, 35, son of Muhammad Shaban Waar of old town Baramulla is disabled due to polio and from his childhood has not been able to walk on his feet. The statement added that he is suffering from many diseases and has to live on medicines.
“This specially-abled person was arrested by Baramulla police on 21st September 2017. He was ruthlessly beaten, tortured and humiliated at various police stations and was slapped with arbitrary Public safety act (PSA), and sent to Kupwara sub-jail,” the letter added.
The statement added that Tanveer Ahmad challenged the safety act in High court Srinagar and the court quashed his PSA and ordered his release.
“Instead of releasing him on court orders, police and civil administration slapped another PSA on him and immediately shifted him to Kot-balwal Jail in Jammu. Recently he has been shifted to Srinagar central jail for appearing in an examination,” the letter said.
Police had earlier said that the accused decorated his tricycle with flags and provoked mobs.
“With the help of his gang, he high-jacked four trucks that were carrying stones and got them unloaded on Baramulla roads to prevent the police from chasing the miscreants,” the police had said in a statement.
