Yasin Malik’s ill health: SHRC issues notice to CS, Home Sec and DGP
Srinagar: The State Human Rights commission on Wednesday issued notices to Chief Secretary J&K, Commissioner secretary Home department and DGP police asking them to submit the detailed compliance report regarding detention and shifting of Muhammad Yasin Malik to NIA custody.
The petitioner, Ahsan Untoo, had pleaded before the SHRC that Malik is a political worker and was detained under Public Safety Act and later handed over to National Investigation Agency, calling it ‘illegal’.
The notice to government officials was issued by SHRC chairperson Rtd Justice Bilal Nazki.
“The authorities illegally allowed the police authorities to change the custody which is otherwise illegal in nature and handed over custody to NIA,” Untoo had pleaded before the commission.
It was reported that Malik’s health conditions got deteriorated and his family members and friends were not allowed to interact with him or get any details about his health.
Untoo in his petitions said that when Malik’s lawyer met him on April 20, at RML Hospital, he was not able to have a conversation with the lawyer as he was ruthlessly beaten by the NIA authorities.
He was rushed to the RML hospital in a very critical condition and since then no one has been allowed to interact with Malik.
Untoo had also pleaded before SHRC that a team be constituted who will receive a firsthand information regarding the well being of Malik, and he be brought before the media so as the apprehensions regarding his health are put to rest.
