Hurriyat (M) slams torture of Lolab residents

SRINAGAR, (SANA): All Parties Hurriyat Conference (M) condemned the torture of six shepherds allegedly by the Army in Lolab area of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.

According to a statement issued here, a Hurriyat (M) spokesman said the Army is misusing the special powers given to it only to suppress Kashmiris.

“Time and again, people of Lolab are being tortured by Army due to their overwhelming presence in the area,” the spokesman said. He also denounced the house detention of Hurriyat’s Media Advisor Advocate Shahid-ul Islam and its Public Affairs Head, Zaffar Akbar Bhat.

“Imposing curbs on the peaceful activities of Hurriyat leaders depicts the anti-democratic attitude of authorities. This is a clear case of political retribution,” the spokesman said and demanded immediate release of youth lodged in various police stations.
