Srinagar: Two protesting youth were detained by the police after Jammu and Kashmir Youth Civil Society staged a protest against the ill treatment of Kashmiri prisoners in Tihar Jail.

The protesting youth urged the international community to stress upon India to stop mistreating Kashmiri prisoners in Indian jails.

The protesters were carrying placards and banners seeking release of political prisoners. One of the banners read: “Tihar Jail is worst than Abu Gharib and Guantanamo jails.”
