Srinagar, Jan 17: Democratic Party Nationalist (DPN) president and former minister, Ghulam Hassan Mir on Thursday said that the government has failed to produce challan in the court against the separatist leaders who have been arrested almost a year ago over the charges of alleged terror funding.

Mir in a statement to media said that even after one year has elapsed since the separatist leaders were arrested, the government has failed to produce challan against the leaders and at the same time are creating obstacles to them in getting bail.

 

“The bail plea of the detainees is being opposed by the government. This is not fair and against the natural justice as one hand they are not producing challan and on the other they are creating obstacle to them in getting the bail. Giving bail to any person doesn’t mean a clean chit to any accused,” he added.

He added wife of one among the detainees, Shahid-ul-Islam is on death bed and govt should not become obstacle to him in getting the bail.
