Jammu, June 09, 2021 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a 70-year-old Rohingya woman detained in Hiranagar jail in Jammu passed away at a hospital, authorities said. The deceased woman has been identified as Noor Aisha who was in jail since early March. A police official said, Aisha was a patient of Asthma. As of now the body is in hospital in the custody of jail authorities, he said. “I don’t know about the plans of last rites and how the body will be disposed of.”
Aisha was among around 200 Rohingya refugees, including women and children, who were detained by Modi regime in early March from their camps in Jammu. The authorities said that they would be deported to Myanmar. The action has drawn widespread condemnation from activists and human rights groups. Lawyers moved the Supreme Court of India seeking halt to their deportation. Earlier in May, a Rohingya woman was injured after collapsing on the bathroom floor. Reports of coronavirus detected in over 50 refugees held inside the jail emerged in recent weeks.
