Srinagar, November 22 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has appealed to the Amnesty International, Asia Watch and other international human rights organizations to use their influence for immediate release of the Kashmiri prisoners from Indian jails.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health of illegally detained senior resistance leader, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, in Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail. He said that Shabbir Ahmed Shah was being subjected to political vendetta and was being deprived of medical treatment despite the fact that he was suffering from multiple ailments. Syed Ali Gilani deplored that other Kashmiri detainees including Altaf Ahmed Shah, Peer Saifullah, Ayaz Muhammad Akbar, Raja Merajuddin Kalwal, Shahid-ul-Islam, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Zahoor Ahmed Watali, Kamran Yousuf and Syed Shahid Yousuf were subjected to ill-treatment in Tihar Jail.

Indian troops, in their fresh act of state terrorism, martyred one more youth in Kupwara district. The youth was killed during the ongoing massive violent military operation in Gujarpati and Zurhama areas of the district. An Indian soldier was killed in an attack in Keran area of the district, today. The troops also launched a cordon and search operation in Harmain area of Shopian district, causing immense inconvenience to the people.

Meanwhile, complete shutdown continued for the second consecutive day, today, in Tral and its adjacent areas of Pulwama district to mourn the killing of martyred youth, Adil Ahmad Chopan. All shops and business establishments were closed and traffic was off the roads.

Hurriyat leaders and organizations including Syed Ali Gilani, Zafar Akbar Butt, Javaid Ahmad Mir, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, Mirwaiz-led Hurriyat forum, JKLF and Peoples League in their separate statements paid glowing tributes to Aadil Ahmad Chopan and other Kashmiri martyrs.
