Aasiya Andrabi denied medical care in Tihar Jail, says petition
ISLAMABAD: The Human Rights Commission of Indian occupied Kashmir has been informed that the health condition of illegally detained Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi, has deteriorated because she is being denied medical treatment inside New Delhi’s infamous Tihar jail.
According to Kashmir Media Service, this was revealed in a petition filed by a rights activist, Advocate Syed Mujtaba Hussain, in the Human Rights Commission of occupied Kashmir. The petition pointed out that continued denial of medical attention and basic facilities to Aasiya Andrabi had affected her health badly.
The petitioner said that the DeM Chairperson was suffering from multiple ailments before she was taken to Delhi. “All her ailments have aggravated now as she is being denied medical care and other basic facilities inside Tihar jail,” Advocate Syed Mujtaba Hussain said.
The petition maintained that other DeM leaders, Nahida Nasreen and Fehmeeda Sofi, were also suffering from unattended health issues.
