International Human Rights
bodies urged to visit Indian jails
The UK-based Kashmiri organisation
has urged the International Human
Rights organisations and the
International Red Cross to visit Indian
jails and investigate reports of torture.
Director, Justice Foundation Kashmir
Centre, Nazir Ahmed Shawl, while
commenting on a report released by
the Medical Board of the Srinagar
Hospital, has asked International
Human Rights organizations and
the International Red Cross to ask
the Indian Government to give them
access to the different Jails and torture
centres where political leaders and
Kashmiri people have been detained.
“This has become necessary
because the life in the Indian Jails
particularly in the torture centres is
creating health hazards and immoral
practices for those detained,” he said
in a statement.
Mr.Shawl said the revealing report
of the Medical Board of the Srinagar
Hospital after examining eight Kashmiri
boys, who have been tortured under
custody, suggests that one of the
tortured has lost the hearing sensation
due to torment.
He also mentioned that due to
intensity of the conflict and due
to different repressive measures
the psychological health of large
number of people of all age groups is
continuously threatened.
“It is imperative for the International
community to take strong notice of this
situation and adopt measures to bring
the parties of dispute to negotiating
table for finding the just and honourable
solution in accordance with popular
aspiration of the people of Jammu and
Kashmir,” he added.
