SRINAGAR, JULY 09 2018
Police foiled today AIP’s proposed protest march outside DIG South Kashmir’s office against Radwani killings and highhandedness of security forces in south Kashmir.
Party spokesman Advocate Ab. Maajid Banday in a statement said that Party had planned a day long sit-in outside DIG South’s office at Anantnag against martial law in south Kashmir, however a large contingent of police detained Er. Rasheed at outskirts of Pampore on way to Anantnag and took him to police station Panth Chowk.
Spokesman added that after Er. Rasheed’s arrest party volunteers tried to carry out a sit-in protest outside DC Office Anantnag but a heavy contingent of police foiled the sit-in and one dozen party activists including Dr. Bari Nayak, Haji Yousuf, Gh. Nabi Mir and others were arrested and detained at police station Anantnag. Party Spokesman while condemning the arrests alleged that there is complete police and army rule in Kashmir and masses have been left to the mercy of Army, CRPF and Police.
Spokesman said “Whatsoever the uncontrolled men in uniform are doing on streets of Kashmir has the complete approval of top army and police officers. The vested interests have gone deep rooted among a section of men in uniform and they have been misleading New Delhi that the might of uniform and draconian laws can calm Kashmiris”.
further said that chocking space of even peaceful protests is not the victory of forces but the confession of guilt and added that Kashmiris will continue their peaceful struggle for resolution of Kashmir dispute. (PTK)
