Pakistan has expressed concern over the safety of Kashmiri freedom struggle leader Shabbir Shah, following reports that he has been attacked in India’s Tihar Jail.
Foreign Office Spokesman Muhammad Faisal, in a series of tweets, urged India to ensure the safety of Shah.
He noted that the attack on Shah follows the mob murder of Pakistani prisoner Shakirullah in another Indian jail.
Faisal said that Pakistan is alarmed at India’s intensified crackdown against Kashmiris.
Meanwhile, Kashmiri freedom struggle leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, in a tweet, has said that India should come clean on the well-being of Shabbir Shah.
