Srinagar, April 25 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities of Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu region have lodged the illegally detained Hurriyat leader and the Chairman of Islami Tanzeem-e-Azadi, Abdul Samad Inqalabi, into a solitary dark narrow cell.

Muhammad Yousuf, the brother of Abdul Samad Inqalabi, in an interview said that the detained leader was sent into solitary confinement after he went on a hunger strike against the inhuman treatment meted out to the detainees by the jail authorities.

Abdul Samad Inqalabi, a resident of Ganistan Sumbal area of North Kashmir’s Bandipora district, was arrested by the Indian police during a nocturnal raid from South Kashmir’s Pulwama district on 25th December last year and since then he has been in the jail.

Muhammad Yousuf said that Inqilabi was beaten up at a local police station before he was shifted to Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu after being booked under draconian law, Public Safety Act, on 12th January, this year.

“Inqalabi was mentally and physically tortured at the Kot Bhalwal Jail and when observed hunger strike against the attitude of the jail authorities, he was put into a narrow single dark cell for 23 days. His health has deteriorated to an alarming proportion,” Muhammad Yousuf said and termed Inqalabi’s detention illegal and unjustified.

“My brother is a political worker who doesn’t believe in violence. His only fault is that he is religious person and demanding right to self-determination for his people,” he said.
