In Occupied Kashmir, the joint resistance leadership (JRL) has said that the Kashmiri Hurriyet leaders arrested by New Delhi-based National Investigation Agency and Enforcement Directorate are being subjected to psychological torture in jails and detention centers.

The leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar condemned the solitary confinement of the leaders.

They said that Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Ayaz Muhammad Akbar, Shahid-ul-Islam, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Altaf Shah, Merajud Din Kalwal, Peer Saifullah and Nayeem Ahmed Khan were being subjected to inhuman treatment.
