Sehrai condemns ‘ill-treatment’ of detainees at central jail Sriangar

Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Tuesday condemned the “ill-treatment” of detainees at central jail Srinagar and accused the jail authorities of making life of Kashmiri prisoners miserable.

In a statement, Sehrai alleged that the behaviour of the jail authorities is very aggressive after the incident.

Sehrai said: “The jail authorities are not only violating the international covenants, but also the fundamental and constitutional rights of these prisoners. Detainee is entitled to every basic facility as per the jail manual.”


He asked the authorities to provide suitable treatment and facilities to all the prisoners and ensure their relatives get a proper access to meet them without any hindrance. He said that “the detainees are subjected to political vengeance. The authorities even ignore the ruling of Supreme Court regarding prisoners’ rights.”
