SRINAGAR: Police on Monday brought a fresh judicial remand against the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik who along with party leader Ghulam Muhammad Bhat was arrested by police last week and lodged at central jail Srinagar on a four day judicial remand.
“Police yesterday brought a fresh judicial remand against JKLF chairman and others extending their custody till 27 January 2018,” JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal said in a statement.
Condemning the police act, Kalwal said, “India and its stooges don’t believe in any kind of democracy in Jammu Kashmir and are only busy in suppressing people’s democratic voices by military and police might.”
“In the name of so-called search operations, Indian forces and police attacked a whole locality (of Redwani, Kulgam of south Kashmir), burned and looted many residential houses, cars, motorcycles and properties. When this news came to fore, police and forces falsely denied it and termed it totally baseless,” he alleged.
“Today, in every nook and corner of Kashmir Valley, search operations, arrests, attacks on people’s properties, CASO , nocturnal raids and other oppressive measures have become the order of the day,” JKLF zonal president said. “Police and forces by calling youth especially those in resistance movement to police stations have made their lives a hell. This state terrorism has now crossed all its limits and is highly condemnable.”
Kalwal said those carrying on “oppressive measures” against common Kashmiris should know that according to the law of retribution they will have to reply for their “crimes against humanity”.
Meanwhile, Noor expressed heartfelt grief over the demise of Abdul Razaq Sheikh of Badroo Yaripora and extended solidarity with the bereaved family especially to the deceased’s son Ghulam Hassan Sheikh.
The deceased was the uncle of JKLF leader Assadullah Sheikh, Noor said.
JKLF leader also condemned the arrest of a social activist advocate Talib Hussain in Jammu for raising his voice for brutally killed innocent girl Asifa in Kuthua.
“This is another face of Indian democracy where a man is arrested for raising his voice in favour of a victim. This is worst police highhandedness which should be condemned by one and all,” Kalwal said.
