SKIMS employees hold protest, demand release of colleague
SRINAGAR, Sep 6: Employees of Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Soura today held protest against what they termed as “illegal detention” of their colleague, Syed Shakeel Ahmad by National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Demanding early release of their colleague, hundreds of employees which include Non-Gazetted and Technical Staff under the banner of Non-Gazetted Employees Welfare Association assembled at hospital premises and staged demonstrations to protest Ahmad’s detention by central probe agency.

It is pertinent to mention that Syed Shakeel, who works as a senior lab technician in SKIMS, is the son of United Jihad Council (UJC) Chief, Syed Sallah-ud-Din who was arrested and subsequently shifted to Delhi by NIA sleuths on August 30 from Rambagh area of the city.

“To arrest and detain a respectable person without any reason is against law. Even if he is the son of Syed Sallah-ud-Din, he is not associated with any outfit nor has any case pending against. There are no valid grounds that forced NIA to detain him for questioning,” said the protesting employees.

They said detaining anyone as a relative of a militant leader is unjustified and illegal and the government should clarify its stand over the routine raids and subsequent arrests by NIA in Kashmir valley.

The employees demanded early release of their colleague who they alleged was detained as part of political vengeance.

“Why should he suffer for none of his fault? Shakeel who is a senior technician is a man of respect and we condemn his unjustified and illegal detention by NIA and demand his early release,” the protesting employees added.
