Srinagar, December 08 : In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the families of three Kashmiris, who were detained by Indian police the other day, said that their dear ones are innocent and police are implicating them in fake cases.
The families of the arrested Kashmiris hailing from Budgam have categorically rejected the claims of Indian Special Cell of Delhi Police that they were involved in any objectionable activities and said that the youth were quite innocent.
Shaista, wife of a detainee Shabbir Ahmed, said that her husband visits the shrine of Ajmair every year and this time another youth from the same village accompanied him.
“My husband is a driver by profession with a clean police record. We were shocked over the claim made by Delhi Police,” she told media adding that Shabir is sole bread winner of the family.
The father of another detainee said that his son is innocent as he had gone to Delhi for the first time in life. “My son is unmarried who had gone to Delhi to purchase some welding stuff,” he said and sought intervention of rights bodies for his release. “My son has never ever been arrested for anything wrong,” he said.
Idrees Pathan, son of another illegally detained Muhammad Ayub Pathan, said his father is innocent. He said that his father had gone to Delhi to make some purchases for his family and business but the Indian police arrested him.
Meanwhile, family members of the three Budgam youth, arrested by Indian police in Delhi, staged a protest in Srinagar, demanding their release. They said, the detained youth are innocent.
