Srinagar, March 21 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, APHC leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement, Khawaja Firdous, has urged India to release all the illegally detained Kashmiris languishing in different jails in and outside the territory.
Khawaja Firdous addressing a public gathering at Bajhpura in Srinagar said that the growing coronavirus threat had posed serious threat to the health of Kashmiri prisoners as most of the jails were overcrowded and had no proper facilities.
He said that, on one side, the Indian government had imposed military lockdown in the territory and had deprived the Kashmiri people of all fundamental facilities since August, last year, while on the other, the coronavirus outbreak had multiplied their miseries.
The DPM Chairman appealed to the international community to play its role in the release of Kashmiri political detainees languishing in different jails of India and the territory in wake of the coronavirus spread.
He also asked the people of the territory to strictly follow the precautionary measures to save themselves from the coronavirus epidemic.
