TeH leader again booked under draconian UAPA




In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the authorities have again booked the illegally detained Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir leader and former district President Kulgam, Mohammad Shaban Dar, under draconian law, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

According to Kashmir Media Service, the 65-year-old Mohammad Shaban Dar, who continues to be under detention for the last 20 months, was booked under UAPA on 6 October 2021 and shifted from Yaripora Police Station in Kulgam to district jail Islamabad. Now the authorities have lodged him at district jail Kehribal in Islamabad.

Family members of the detained leader said that during his detention, Mohammad Shaban’s mother also passed away last year but he was not released or allowed to attend her funeral.
They have appealed to the world human rights organizations to impress upon India to release him from illegal detention.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League Vice Chairman, Syed Aijaz Rehmani, in a statement issued in Islamabad strongly condemned the continued illegal detention of Mohammad Shaban.

He expressed serious concern over the fresh arrest spree launched by the Indian police and troops across IIOJK. He urged India to release all illegally detained Kashmiris including Hurriyat leaders and activists languishing in different jails.—INP
