Srinagar, Apr 12: Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani Friday strongly condemned the ED notice to daughters of jailed separatist leader Shabir Ahmad Shah, arresting of JKLF chairman Yaseen Malik by NIA and shifting him to Tihar jail, repeated quizzing of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and shifting of Jamaat-e-Islami and other religious leaders outside the state.
Geelani, in a statement, said that “rulers are using their investigative agencies as a war weapon to strangulate the people in general and Hurriyat workers and leaders in particular”.
“Shabir Shah has spent most of his life in jails and now as well, he is lodged in the Tihar jail for the last two years. He is in their custody to answer any question and issuing notices to his minor daughters is not only undemocratic, immoral but shameful as well,” Geelani said.
Reacting to the JKFL chief Yaseen Malik’s arrest by NIA and shifting him to Tihar jail, Hurriyat (G) chairman said that separatist leaders and workers are not alien to these jails and interrogations.
“Putting them behind bars on decade’s old fabricated cases is nothing but to pressurize them to subjugation which is never going to happen,” Geelani said.

An official in the Kashmir University said over Rs 25 crore have been sanctioned for 50 different projects in the department of biotechnology, clinical bio-chemistry, botany, zoology, nanotechnology, pharmacy, environmental science, physics, electronics and chemistry. 

“The high definition equipment, which works in -80, -20, -120 temperature, are imported from abroad. Regular power cuts are affecting these equipments,” the official said. 

Speaking to The Kashmir Monitor, Chief Engineer PDD, Qazi Hashmat said Kashmir University being a premier institute should install a backup power system to meet exigencies.

“PDD has proposed to provide dedicated power supply from 33 KV line. Once the university credits the amount, we will start work on installation of the line,” Qazi said. 

Spokesperson of Kashmir University, Professor Shahid Rasool said the issue has not been brought into hid notice. “I will check with the department heads and resolve it as soon as possible,” he said.

Sources said Kashmir University had signed memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the PDD to provide 24*7 power supply.
