SRINAGAR, Aug 12 (SABAH): Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has expressed serious concern over the alleged ill and inhuman treatment meted out to its chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah at Tihar Jail.
“Shah Sahib is a diabetic patient. He is not even provided the basic diet, let alone diabetic diet,” a party spokesperson, in a statement, quoted Shah’s family members, who met him (Shah), as saying.
“The condition of Shabir Shah continues to be pathetic despite the court order. Though jail authorities take rupees 6000 per month for every inmate but they refused the same to be deposited for Shah Sahib. This reveals authorities are deliberately playing with his life,” he said.
He said, “Shah Sahib is lodged at Jail number 7 where about 60 to 70 hardcore criminals are placed and they are calling him Aatankwadi (terrorist) and abusing him. There is a serious threat to his life,” he said.
