Sehrai demands release of ailing prisoner

SRINAGAR: Chairman Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Monday expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health condition of Abdul Gani Bhat of Sopore, who is languishing in Baramulla jail.
Sehrai in a statement said Abdul Gani is suffering from various ailments and has developed a serious kidney problem. “However, despite all this, he is not being provided proper treatment and continues to be subjected to political vengeance,” he said.
He said the 3 years of incarceration and “denial” of medical facility has taken a heavy toll on Abdul Gani’s health which has deteriorated to the extent that he is struggling to walk and move properly now.
“Such outrageous and inhuman behaviour is a gross violation of human and prisoners’ rights,” Sehrai said and demanded that Abdul Gani Bhat should be provided immediate medical treatment.
“In fact, authorities should facilitate his release on health grounds without further delay,” he said.
