Woman urges shifting of jailed husband to Srinagar jail

27

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a woman from Srinagar has urged that her husband, imprisoned in Udhampur jail in Jammu be shifted closer to home.

Saba Bano of Batmaloo held a protest in Srina-gar and said, she has not been able to meet her hus-band, Irfan Ahmad Mir, for the last three years, since he was arrested and shifted to Udhampur, nearly 250 kilometers from Srinagar.

“I have no resources to bear the travel expenses to Udhampur as I have been disowned by my in-laws and my parents are not able to help me,” she said.

She has also not been able to plead the case of her husband as she struggles with the lack of finan-cial support.

She said that her husband, Irfan Ahmad Mir was working as a labour and she had no idea why he has been jailed. She said, she has been facing desperate financial issues since her husband was jailed.

“I have not been able to even bear the expenses on milk feeding of our daughter,” she said.
She appealed to the authorities that her husband should be shifted to Srinagar jail.

“I request the authorities to shift my husband to Srinagar jail at least, if he cannot be released. Our 3 years old daughter wants to meet her father,” she said.—KMS
