Abuse, torture, humiliation have become order of the day’
Jammu Kashmir liberation front (JKLF) today strongly condemned the atrocities being committed on jail inmates at district jail Islamabad (Anant-nagh).
In a statement here, the JKLF said a delegation of parents and relatives of inmates lodged at district jail Islamabad came to JKLF office and narrated the stories of atrocities being committed at their kith and kin in the said jail.
They said that superintend jail Saleem Mirza, Chakar Hawaldar Ghulam Rasool and medical assistant have made the lives of inmates hell at the said jail.
“Abusing, torturing, humiliating and beatings have become the order of the day and there is no let up in these atrocities despite several pleas,” it said.
JKLF leaders heard the complaints of the delegation and pledged them every support in this regard. While condemning the atrocities, JKLF leaders said Saleem Mirza has been a notorious officer who was himself in jail for many years for his criminal activities and from him expecting any good is purposeless.
They said that a person who needs to be in jail himself is running a jail and is using all his criminal behaviors against jail inmates.
JKLF appeals all the international human rights organizations including ICRC to take serious note of these atrocities and do whatever necessary to save jail inmates of Islamabad jail from the oppressive behavior of jail authorities.
