HCBA remembers Jaleel Andrabi Advocate on his martyrdom anniversary

Srinagar, March 26 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the High Court Bar Association (HCBA) held a seminar in Srinagar to pay tribute to noted human rights activist, Jaleel Andrabi Advocate, on his 26th martyrdom anniversary.

Advocate Jaleel Andrabi was abducted by Major Avtar Singh of the 35th Rashtriya Rifles unit of the Indian Army in Srinagar on March 08, 1996. Three weeks later, his body was found floating in the Jhelum River. An autopsy showed that he was killed days after his arrest.

Addressing the seminar, the HCBA Chairman, Nazir Ahmed Ronga, spokesman Ghulam Nabi Shaheen and Advocate Arshad Andrabi said that fundamental freedoms guaranteed under the international law are causality in the territory.

They said the martyrs have laid their lives but it is the duty of the Kashmiri people to become torch bearers for safe and bright future of the coming generations in IIOJK. “We hold a pledge to our nation to guide them and safeguard their all political, legal and economic,” they maintained.

A resolution unanimously adopted on the occasion that peace should be given a chance in the region. “We are partners in peace and resolution of Kashmir dispute on the principle of people’s right to self-determination,” it added.

The speakers said, the controversial movie, “The Kashmir Files” is a bundle of lies to malign the Kashmiri Muslims and open a new chapter of repression in the occupied territory.
