SRINAGAR, Dec 05 (SABAH): Family members of senior Hurriyat leader Shabir Ahmed Shah have alleged that his health is fast deteriorating in absence of proper medical aid.
“I met my husband after going through toughest ever security related formalities and frisking. I came to know that he has been suddenly shifted from jail number 7 to jail number 1 where only death convicts are lodged,” Dr Bilqees Shah told media over phone from New Delhi. “This is the solitary confinement cell where only criminals facing death penalty are lodged.”
She said Shah’s Head up Tilt Test has come positive at G B Panth Hospital New Delhi. “He was then advised HOLTER test at Safderjang hospital but the machine was not functioning and new date for the test has been fixed on 5 January, 2018. This has been done despite the fact it’s an emergency test,” she said.
She also alleged that Shah is being deprived of medicines that include medicine for diabetes and blood pressure. “I see evil intentions behind the jail authorities in denying basic medical aid to my husband,” Dr Bilqees said.
