Srinagar, May 30: Muslim League Jammu Kashmir has condemned the maltreatment of political prisoners in Udhampur Jail during the holy month of Ramadan.

Jail authorities provide them rotten food during the time of Sehri and Iftaar. Their health has deteriorated ,” the spokesperson said.
Sajad Ayoubi said that besides Udhampur Jail, there are jails in India where Kashmiri prisoners are being harassed and subdued. “We seek the intervention of Human Rights organizations to put an end to such evil deeds and ask India to stop treating Kashmiri prisoners as animals,” he said. (CNS)
