Srinagar: Three women from north Kashmir’s Bandipora district on Thursday made a fervent appeal to the Jammu and Kashmir Police to release their ‘incarcerated’ husbands.

The women from Gujjar Community emerged in Press Enclave Srinagar to narrate their story this afternoon. They hail from Dardpora village of Bandipora in north Kashmir.

“Our husbands were called to police chowki in Sumlar some two and a half months ago. Till now, we don’t know about their whereabouts. Some police personnel say they have been lodged at Kot Balwal Jail Jammu. It was difficult for us to reach here in Srinagar to lodge the protest, how we can reach Jammu and find them,” the protesting women said.

They identified their husbands as Muhammad Amin Gojar, Muhammad Suliman Gojar and Abdul Bari.

“They were called to Chowki first, then shifted to Bandipora and from Bandipora we don’t know where they have been lodged,” the women said with tearful eyes, adding they are completely dependent on their husbands as there is none to earn a livelihood for them.

“Police first informed us that our husbands will be released shortly after questioning but till date, we don’t know where they are,” Sakina one of the protesting women said.

When asked why they were picked up, they said they don’t know anything and even the police didn’t disclose anything about it. (KNT)
