Srinagar, 10 March(KMW): Hurriyat (M) has strongly condemned the arrest and shifting of senior Hurriyat leader and PPP Chairman Er. Hilal War to Srinagar Central Jail.
In a strongly-worded press release, the Hurriyat spokesman said: â€œWe strongly denounce the repressive policies of the ruling regime against the innocent Kashmiris. People are deprived of their fundamental right to live in presence of lakhs of forces and terror is unleashed on people through harassment and torture.â€
The spokesman while extending the sympathy with the families of slain civilians said a Hurriyat delegation led by Engineer Hilal Ahmed War was on way to Shopian but was stopped and taken into custody and later shifted to Central Jail which deserves highest condemnation. â€œNow resistance leaders arenâ€™t allowed to condole the killings of innocent civilians,â€ he said.
War was detained near Sonawar along with other Hurriyat activists while on his way to Shopian to express solidarity with the families of six youth killed on Sunday, March 04 by army. The six slain persons included two militants of LeT and four civilians.
War and others were later lodged at Police Station Ram Munshibagh from where War was shifted to Srinagar Central Jail.
