Srinagar, January 09, 2021 (PPI-OT): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, International Forum for Justice and Human Rights JandK Chairman Mohammad Ahsan Untoo has expressed shock and anger over the inhuman treatment meted out to three youth, arrested on the fake allegation of killing Advocate Baber Qadri.

Police arrested Zahid Farooq, Asif Butt and Shahid Shafi on the charge while their families have refuted the police claim. Mohammad Ahsan Untoo visited the family of Zahid Farooq. He was informed by the sister of Zahid that they were denied a meeting with her brother for two months.

The IFJHR appealed to human rights organizations to intervene and save the young innocent boys from being convicted on false charges. Untoo said that another youth Syed Mohammad Ashraf of Batagund Dooru Shahabad is in jail for the past 16 years without any reason. Babar Qadri, a 40-year-old lawyer, was killed in firing by unknown gunmen in Hawal area of Srinagar on September 24, 2020.
