SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, a court in Srinagar granted bail to several Hurriyat leaders in 21 years old fake case.

Several leaders appeared before the court of 3rd Munsif Fozia Pal in Srinagar in a case registered against them by police 21 years ago.

Those who appeared in court were Professor Abdul Ghani Butt, Javaid Ahmed Mir, Wajahat Bashir Qureshi, Muhammad Sidiq Shah, Sheikh Aslam and others. APHC (G) Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani and the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik could not be produced before the court as they are in custody.

Pertinently, police in 1998 had registered a fake case against a number of Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Geelani and Muhammad Yasin Malik for organizing a march towards UN office, Sonawar.

The court, after hearing the arguments from the lawyers, GN Shaheen, Babar Qadri and Advocate Tahoor Mushtaq Pampori, granted bail to the leaders. The case has been listed for next hearing on December 7.

Meanwhile, unrelenting lockdown and military siege continue to haunt the daily life of the Kashmiri people on 119th consecutive day on Sunday. The continued suspension of internet, prepaid and SMS services are forcing the Kashmiris to quit jobs in prestigious institutions across the world.

Besides, the internet gag is also depriving them of the opportunity to attend international conferences and apply for fellowships offered by institutions of global repute.

As a mark of silent protest, people in the Valley continue to keep their shops closed except for a brief period in the morning and evening and stay away from schools and offices. Public transport is also unavailable.

The clampdown has not only affected inter-district road connectivity drastically but has also thrown great challenges for old city residents due to the shutting of factories, industries, and other workplaces.

The residents of Kashmir valley are facing severe hardships due to shortage of essential commodities due to continued blockade and fast approaching winter.
