Early Times Report
jammu, Apr 18: A 26-year-old Kishtwar man, the father of five children, was Tuesday shifted in a critical condition to Government Medical College Jammu after he was allegedly subjected to third degree torture by the Kishtwar police.
Akhter Hussain Hajam, son of Ali Mohammed Hajam, of Keshwan in Kishtwar, was tortured during illegal confinement in connection with the case of disappearance of Tariq Hussain who is missing for last five weeks.
Speaking to Early Times, the kin of Akhter said he was kept in illegal detention by the police initially for 27 days after they picked him on March 18. He was again detained a couple of days ago. The family members alleged that during the earlier detention, Akhter was subjected to brutal torture inside police station Kishtwar.
They said that after releasing him on surety bonds, the police laid the condition that he will have to appear at police station Kishtwar daily, but was again kept in illegal confinement and tortured, as a result of which he was in critical condition.
"The doctors told us that had received head injuries. His condition is serious and the chances of his survival are bleak," said Irshad Ahmed, cousin of Akhter.
He said Akhter's wife Tahira Begum and her one month-old-child was also under police detention on Tuesday. The woman and her child were later handed over to local Sarpanch by the Station House Officer.
"They called us to police station. When we reached there, Akhter was being shifted to district hospital in a critical condition," said Irshad, adding that after doctors termed him critical police boarded him in ambulance for Jammu and forced the family members to accompany him which they refused.
Irshad said that after this incident the police tried to detain them so that they could not narrate anything to the local people. But somehow they manage to escape from the police station. He said that they are poor and are working as labourers and have no money for Akhter's treatment.
"They told us to accompany him. How can we when we don't have any money? Since last one month the family is shuttling between home and police station," said Irshad.
He said Akhter was engaged as labourer by Tariq Hussain at his home for some construction work. A day before Tariq went missing, Akhter had called him demanding money for his work. He said Akhter again joined the construction work at Tariq's residence where he came to know about Tariq's disappearance.
Irshad said that police brutalities was visible on Akhter's body. Akhter's brother Abdul Gani Hajam blamed SP Kishtwar, Deputy SP HQ Kishtwar and SHO Police Station Kishtwar for torturing his brother.
He said that it is only police who tortured him inside police station Kishtwar and now the police is trying to prepare a concocted story wherein they tried to give the impression that Akhter had made suicide bid inside police station Kishtwar.
Meanwhile, MLA Inderwal Ghulam Mohammad Saroori visited the GMC Jammu and condemned the allege torture of Akhter Hussain and called for a probe into the incident.
