Bandipora: Days after a high-powered committee was set up by the Jammu and Kashmir government on the directions of Supreme Court on the release of prisoners to decongest jails in wake of Covid-19 outbreak, a Bandipora family on Sunday appealed authorities to release the head of their family who is languishing in jail from past four years and whose spouse is very ill at home.

Abdul Wahid Mir (50), a resident of Unagam Bandipora was arrested by police in 2016 in a militancy related case. Earlier, also he spent a couple of years in jail on charges of being sympathizers of militants. He is currently lodged at Srinagar Central Jail.

The family of Mir, said that his wife is suffering from multiple ailments and there is nobody to take care of her. Mir has two little kids, 14 and 12 years old. “We appeal authorities to release Abdul Wahid on humanitarian grounds,” they said.

The family members said that Mir is not involved in a high profile militancy case but was arrested merely on grounds that he is a militant sympathizer. “He was the lone bread earner for his family. His kids and wife are suffering immensely and we request authorities to release him at his time when Covid-19 threat is looming in Kashmir,” they said. (KNT)
