Indian police harassing family of Inayat Parrey in IOK

Srinagar, June 03, 2017 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the family members of a Hajin resident, Inayat Akbar Parrey, have said that they are being harassed by Indian police.

The family members and their relatives assembled at the Press Enclave in Srinagar and said that police arrested five family members of Inayat Parrey and kept them in lock up for 20 days.

The protesters were holding placards and banners inscribed with slogans like ‘Militants are not born but are created by police.’

Haleema Bano, the mother of Inayat Akbar Parrey on the occasion said that her son was being witch hunted by police. “The police frequently used to call my son to police stations even though he was associated with media and had nothing to do with ‘militants’. His only fault was that he exposed the brutalities of police in the district,” she said.

“To force my son to appear before police, my two sons and their cousin are still languishing in lockup. We appeal police to release them and allow my son to live a peaceful life. Please don’t push my son (Inayat) to wall and force him to join militant ranks,” Haleema mainained.
