ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Naseem Gilani son of APHC Chairman Syed Ali Gilani have received fresh summons from the Indian National Investigation Agency (NIA) asking them to appear before its New Delhi headquarters for questioning in fake cases.
According to Kashmir Media Service, this is the second time in about one week that Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Naseem Gilani have been summoned by the NIA to New Delhi. The investigation agency has also summoned Hurriyat leader Zafar Akbar Butt to Delhi on Saturday.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said the summoning of NIA is meant to intimidate and harass the Kashmiri leadership. However, Hurriyat leaders can never be forced into submission by such Indian tactics.
Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir Chairman Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said Kashmir has been turned into a concentration camp where people are detained on frivolous charges. He condemned the arrest of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Bandipora district President Danish Mushtaq Malik and other party leaders including Syed Imtiyaz Haider and Bashir Ahmed.
The authorities shifted two Kashmiri youth, Nasir Rashid and Ashiq Dar to Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu. They were slapped with draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) a few days ago.
