SRINAGAR: The incarcerated chairman of Muslim League Jammu and Kashmir Masarat Alam Bhat was on Tuesday brought from Kot Bhalwal Jail, Jammu to Srinagar for the hearing of a case lodged against him in 2015.
A spokesperson of Muslim League in a statement said Masarat was produced before the Additional District and Sessions Judge who after hearing the arguments fixed the next hearing of the case on October 30.
He said after hearing, Masarat Alam was shifted back to Jammu jail.
The spokesperson added that the state as well as central government sets new policies and methods for Masarat Alam’s continued imprisonment under “baseless” cases which is “worst kind of human rights violation and highly condemnable”.
“The government is deliberately doing it under a plan so that Alam is not released by court,” he said adding that prolonging the “illegal” detention of Masarat shows the “frustration” of authorities.
League said the policy adopted by government through which Alam is being moved from one police station to another cannot break his will and courage.
“Government instead of honouring the court orders is ignoring all norms and rules, and Alam is being subjected to political vendetta,” he said.
The spokesperson appealed the rights defender bodies to take note of the “worst political revenge against Masarat Alam and his illegal detention”.
