DeM denounces re-arrest of Sarjan Barkati

ISLAMABAD, Jan 6 (Pakistan Point News - APP - 06th Jan, 2017 ) : Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) has strongly condemned the re-arrest of Hurriyet activist, Sarjan Barkati, after his detention under draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), was quashed by the court in Indian occupied Kashmir. According to Kashmir Media Service, DeM General Secretary, Nahida Nasreen in a statement issued in Held Srinagar termed the re-arrest of Sarjan Barkati as the height of suppression.

"The court had quashed his PSA but the police arrested him again which is highly condemnable," she said. Nahida Nasreen said that Sarjan Barkati was arrested on October 1 and was later booked under the PSA and shifted to Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu. The re-arrest of Barkati was political retribution, she said. DeM General Secretary said that Sarjan Barkati was instrumental in arranging massive pro-freedom and pro-Pakistan rallies in the parts of south Kashmir which unnerved the puppet rulers. Nahida said that occupied Kashmir was being directly ruled by Sangh Parivaar and their agents had no authority in any of the affairs. "We are facing this lawlessness for last 70 years and India is bulldozing every move which it thinks can challenge its authority," she said.
