Bar condemns leaders arrests


Kashmir High Court Bar Association on Tuesday condemned the arrest of Mohammad Yasin Malik, Chairman JKLF and also of placing Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, Shabir Ahmad Shah and others residence leaders under continued house arrest ahead of a sit-in-cum-seminar at Maisuma here.
The call for the protest was given by the joint resistance group to highlight the plight of the prisoners lodged in various jails, both outside and inside Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, the lawyers’ body reiterated that by using these “undemocratic and brutal” methods to suppress the freedom struggle, New Delhi will not achieve anything.—KR
