Srinagar, November 29 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, family members of illegally detained Hurriyat leader, Abdul Samad Inqalabi, have said that he was beaten to pulp by Indian police inside Kathua Jail in Jammu.

Indian Army had arrested Samad Inqalabi from the residence of popular martyred youth leader, Burhan Wani, in Tral town on July 6 this year – two days before his first martyrdom anniversary – and later handed him over to the police.

After being kept at Tral Police Station for 13 days, he was shifted to Srinagar Central Jail. Later, he was booked under draconian law, Public Safety Act, and was shifted to Kathua Jail.

“Samad Inqalabi was ruthlessly beaten up inside the jail and to prove that he is mentally unsound, the jail authorities even kept him in mental hospital,” family members of the detained leader said.

“The incident occurred on 14th of this month. We are eagerly waiting for his next hearing that falls on December 7 in Kupwara Session Court. There is a threat to his life and we appeal the authorities to shift him to Srinagar Central Jail,” they added.
