HSF planning demonstration in Gilgit

PT Report

Aliabad, August 26: Two more people were detained Friday early morning in Hunza Valley, in a series of arrests started after the murder of two protesting IDPs in a brazen act of police terrorism.

A group of protesters staged a shutter-down strike in and around Aliabad town, the major commercial hub of Hunza – Nagar district, to register their condemnation of the police’s high-handedness.

The Home Secretary of GB, Bilal Lodhi, was severely criticized by the protesters for “telling lies”. Lodhi had promised a week earlier that no more people will be arrested till completion of an independent judicial investigation of the incident.

It is pertinent to note that at least 17 people were already arrested in Hunza but none of them have been produced in any court so far.

Meanwhile, Hunza Students Federation (HSF) has announced that they will organize a peaceful protest demonstration in Gilgit against the random arresting of innocent civilians. They have also demanded speedy beginning of the judicial investigation  already ordered by GB Chief Minister and GB Supreme Appellate Court.
