Lamenting at authorities and expressing his grave concern over the use of excessive force against innocent civilians and youth, All Parties Hurriyat Conference general secretary Gh Nabi Sumji, said that intimidations and resorting to repressive and coercive measures and inflicting atrocities on innocent people on one pretext or the other, is highly deplorable, saying it won’t force people to submission.

Hurriyat leader while referring to atrocities inflicted by men in uniform, said that during CASO, youth were mercilessly thrashed, subjected to worst humiliation, their mobile phones snatched and scrutinized. This is worst type of arrogance and no where on earth, such type bullying ever existed.

Youth are being detained on fake charges, said he and strongly condemned the rampant use of infamous PSA and lodging countless FIR’s against youth to prolong their illegal custody, saying it is the direct assault on civil liberty and fundamental rights of common masses.

Denying liberty, dignity and subjecting to humiliation, tantamount to gross human rights violation, spokesman said and appealing international organisations for human rights for their cognizance, asked to check the use of unbridled force and initiate impartial probe against growing human rights violations in occupied state.

Strongly criticizing NIA, spokesman blamed the agency for harassing the resistance leadership, saying the raids on residence of incarcerated leader Syeda Asiya is highly deplorable and unfortunate.
