Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) today expressed serious concern over the “ill-treatment” being meted out to the incarcerated young boys at police station and forces’ camps, appealing to the international human rights groups for intervention to ‘save the life of young Kashmiris’. 

“Police stations have become Nazi camps where Kashmiri youth are being tortured, terrorized and humiliated by police and other forces and hence pushed to the wall.

International human rights organizations should intervene and save Kashmiri youth from state brutality,” a spokesman of JKLF, in a statement today, said, condemning the ‘torture’ which Kashmiri detainees are being subjected to in jails and police stations. 

“A youth namely Sajad Ahmad Niay of Naidkhai, Sumbal, who was detained at central jail Srinagar for two years and was recently bailed out and re-arrested by police, was on production of bail orders at central jail shifted to Sumbal Police station. At the police station, he was ruthlessly beaten to pulp by SOG and other police men and shifted back to central jail in an injured condition,” the spokesman, quoting a delegation of people from Sumbal, Sonawari, said.  

He said, “Another youth, 16, Ghulam Mohi ud Din khan is in SOG custody from last two months where he is on daily basis beaten, tortured and humiliated by men uniform. Another political activist Meraj ud Din Parray of the same area is also in police custody from last three months and is being regularly tortured and terrorized by police.”

“The delegation provided the details of scores of other youth who are in police custody and are being frightened along with their families,” the spokesman said.

Condemning atrocities which Kashmiri youth are being subjected to allegedly by police, forces and SOG, the spokesman said, “These atrocities and humiliations are responsible for pushing Kashmiri youth to the wall and hence promoting violence. Police stations have become Nazi camps where no Kashmiri is safe and where our innocent youth are being tortured, beaten, humiliated, terrorized and pushed to the wall.”
