Hyderabad: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday said that contrary to the Centre’s claim, there is no normalcy in Kashmir and teen-aged children are detained and tortured in police lockups.
“14-year-old children are being arrested. They are beaten up for two-three days inside the lock-up and then handed over to their parents by the Inspector. There is no implementation of Juvenile Justice Act there and juvenile centre having a capacity to accommodate 100 children are overcrowded with 500,” he said talking to media persons here.
“Why does a former Chief Minister (Ghulam Nabi Azad) of Jammu and Kashmir need to seek permission from Supreme Court to travel to Jammu and Kashmir? It shows that there is no normalcy in Kashmir. If the government claims that everything is normal then why can’t politics be done,” he said.
The Supreme Court on Monday allowed senior Congress leader and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Azad to visit Srinagar, Baramulla, Anantnag and Jammu. Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi said, “He will not make any speeches or hold any public rally as per his own submissions.” CJI further stated, “If requirement arises, I may visit Jammu and Kashmir.” Speaking to ANI, Azad had said that the petition filed by him on the scrapping of Article 370 was in his personal capacity and on humanitarian grounds. The Congress leader stated that he wants to enquire about the well-being of his family members and other residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
