Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) has said that the puppet authorities have disrespected court’s order by not shifting party Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi and her associate, Fehmeeda Sofi from Jammu’s Amphalla jail to Srinagar.
According to media sources, the DeM General Secretary, Nahida Nasreen in a statement issued in Srinagar said that on June 4 the High Court of the territory issued orders for shifting Aasiya Andrabi and Fehmeeda Sofi from Amphalla jail Jammu to Srinagar.
She said that copy of the order was presented to the Home Department of the territory and other officials concerned including the SP of Amphalla jail and the district magistrate on June 6. She said that when the SP of Amphalla jail contacted the Home Department regarding the court order, it didn’t consider it and asked him to delay the proceedings till further orders. She said that the High Court had quoted an Indian Supreme Court ruling which stated that the detainees should be kept in jail nearer to their homes.
Nahida Nasreen deplored that instead of considering the order, the SP of Amphala jail has been directed to continue the lodgment of the party leaders and now the draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) order shows their detention for three months. “Earlier, there was no mention of time frame of confinement but now three-month detention has been mentioned. This is deplorable,” she said.
She appealed to the world human rights organisations to take notice of the matter and use their influence to save the life of Aasiya Andrabi who, under a well-knit conspiracy, has been detained illegally.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement Chairperson, Farida Bahenji in her statement in Srinagar condemning the killing of innocent Kashmiris and arrest spree in every nook and corner of the Valley, appealed to the international community to take notice of the stepped up Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir.
She said that the sacrifices of Kashmiri people would not be allowed to go waste and the ongoing freedom movement would be taken to its logical conclusion at all costs.
