Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) chairman Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai has strongly condemned the slapping of PSA on Syed Imtiyaz Haider, Tashooq Ahmed Banday, Manzoor Ahmed Bhat of Budgam and Farooq Ahmed Shah of Kulgam and shifting them to Jammu Jail.
In a statement he said, “it is a sheer injustice that they have been shifted to far-flung areas. The jails and interrogation centres have been filled with innocents and many have been shifted to jails outside the Valley. These measures are being used as tools to punish the people for their political dissent and belief.”
Sehrai said, “Shifting of political prisoners outside the state is political vendetta and putting hundreds into prison is no democracy. We live in an arbitrary environment the voices of peaceful dissent are always put under strong curbs.”
