Indian police arrest Abdul Ahad Parra in Baramulla

Srinagar, November 26, 2015 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, Indian police arrested the Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League (JKML) acting General Secretary, Abdul Ahad Parra, outside Baramulla sub-jail when he went to meet some illegally detained youth in the prison. The police took into custody Abdul Ahad Parra along with Zahoor Ahmad and Ghulam Ahmad, two civilians from Budgam, and lodged them in Baramulla police station.

The JKML spokesman, Muhammad Shafi Reshi, in a statement in Srinagar terming the arrest of Abdul Ahad Parra and others as unwarranted, illogical and unlawful strongly condemned the police action. He said that arresting of political leaders and activists had become order of the day in occupied Kashmir and police were appeasing the Sangh Parivar by unleashing a reign of terror in the territory.

The spokesman said that the police had started a war against the JKML in particular and its leaders and activists were being targeted every now and then. He appealed to the human rights organizations to take cognizance of the arrest spree in occupied Kashmir and make sure that political leaders and activists are not harassed any more.
