Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Youth Wing President Waheed Rehman Para was found unconscious in jail on Saturday.
As per a report published in Kashmir Dot Com (KDC), the jail authorities took him to the Police Hospital for medical check-up.
The report said that the doctors had recommended an Echo scan and follow-up check-up in a Super Speciality.
Meanwhile, the family members of Waheed said that his health is worsening with each passing day. “We are in shock to hear that he was found unconscious in a barrack,” said a family member as per the KDC report.
The family members have appealed the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to facilitate the medical check-up of Waheed.
“Doctors have advice a medical check-up which includes Echo scan and specialist check-up. However, since last two days he has not been taken to hospital,” the family members have alleged.
Official sources said that Waheed was taken to hospital after his Blood pressure (BP) suddenly dropped.
“After medical check-up, he was discharged from hospital and was shifted back to central Srinagar,” an official said.
Para was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on November 25, 2020, just a day after he announced his candidacy for the District Development Council elections and filed nomination papers.
In January 2021, he was granted bail by the NIA court. The special judge at the court held that “offences particularly falling under Unlawful Activities Act (UAPA) are not prima facie made out against the accused”.
The judge had said that none of the chargesheets presented before the court contained “reference of the present applicant” or referred to him as “suspected accused”.
While Waheed was stepping out of the jail, he was arrested by Jammu Kashmir Police Wing, CIK, on the same charges.
His bail application was rejected twice and is jailed in Srinagar Central Jail where his condition has deteriorated as per family. (KDC)
