Srinagar, July 21 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the family of a Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) Jammu and Kashmir activist, Bashir Ahmad Malik, has said that Indian police have detained him illegally.

The 34-year-old Bashir Ahmad Malik, a resident of Uranhal Bijbehara area of Islamabad district, was picked up by the police three months ago on charges of stone pelting.

The aged mother of Bashir, Jana Begum, told media that two FIRs were registered against her son at Bijbehara police station in which he has already been granted bail.

“He is the only source of our livelihood while his father, Ghulam Nabi Malik, is suffering from last stage of cancer and is bed-ridden since a year now. If my son has already been bailed out then for what crime they have kept him behind the bars till date. We seek his immediate release,” she said.

She said that her son was killed in mid nineties by the Indian forces during a siege and search operation and since then Bashir had been looking after the family.

“I already lost my elder son in nineties after he achieved martyrdom and Bashir is the last hope of ours now. But this cruel administration is keeping us apart and it is hard to manage the house in his absence,” added Jana Begum.

Bashir Ahmad Malik, a contractor by profession, is father of two minor sons and a daughter and is languishing in Bijbehara police station for the past three months.
