Srinagar, May 15 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) has demanded immediate release of ailing party chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi and her personal secretary, Fehmeeda Sofi, who are in police custody since April 26.
DeM General Secretary, Nahida Nasreen in a statement in Srinagar said that it had been more than five days since the court had issued bail orders for Aasiya and her personal secretary. “But police, without any reason or case, is keeping them illegally detained at Rambagh police station,” she said and added that the party chairperson was in critical condition as she not only needed oxygen and sophisticated medical care but also a hygienic environment. “But it seems that the puppet regime is looking for excuses to keep her in custody,” she said.
Nahida termed it sheer lawlessness that a critical patient, who had been advised by the doctors to undergo specialized treatment, had been kept in jail. “Four days have passed since the doctors have prescribed that she needs sophisticated medical care as she has developed different ailments apart from asthma. Doctors have also said that her life is at risk, Nasreen added.
Aasiya and Fehmeeda were arrested on April 26.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League in a statement issued in Srinagar expressed concern over deteriorating health of party leaders Asadullah Parray and Tariq Ahmad Ganai in jail. The party said that the authorities were using inhuman tactics to break the Kashmiris’ will for freedom.
