Parvez Imroz arrested, released
SRINAGAR, July 2: Police today arrested prominent human rights activist and lawyer, Parvez Imroz near Exhibition Crossing. However, he was released later.

Police claimed that Parvez tore the uniform of a traffic police Dy SP Reyaz Ahmad Halwai. Coalition of Civil Society (CCS) has strongly refuted the charges of Halwai that Imroz assaulted him. “It was the police officer who hurled abuses and foul language and directed police station Sher Gari to arrest the noted lawyer,” CCS said.

Reports said Parvez was taken into custody soon after Halwai complained that he assaulted him when he stopped his vehicle.

A police official said that an FIR vide 353/2013 was registered against the lawyer for assaulting a government official on duty. “A case was registered against him, however he was released late on,” he said.

In a statement, bar while condemning the assault and detention of Parvez said it shall file a complaint for physical assault and illegal arrest of of lawyer. The bar association said Halwai is the son of National Conference worker , Mohammad Yousuf Halwai, killed by unidentified gunmen in 1990s.

“Today morning when the lawyer was going to attend a matter of serious nature of human rights violation which was fixed before the Hon’ble High Court and the assault seems to stop the advocate from reaching the court to attend the matter. This assault and two hour long unlawful detention of Parvaiz Imroze in the police station Shergari amounts to interruption in due discharge of duties of a lawyer and interruption in dispensation of justice. The Bar Association views the matter very serious as an insult to the lawyers community besides an interference in justice delivery system by the erring police official and the Bar Association as such has decided to take up the matter at all levels besides seeking legal action against the said delinquent official,” the bar association added.
