Srinagar: The family of human rights activist Salman Yousuf from North Kashmir’s Bandipora district has expressed serious concern over his deteriorating health. Yousu has been in since more than a year now.

Salman Yousuf, according to his wife Zamrooda, has been languishing in jail from the past 18 months under the draconian Public Safety Act.

“My husband is a human rights campaigner as well as the Coordinator of Institute of Human Rights Studies. He was arrested in September 2016 after Kashmir witnessed popular people’s agitation. Since then he has been sent to at least five jails including Kathua and Kotbhalwal,” Zamrooda said.
