Shocking: ‘Central Jail’ Srinagar turns into a militancy recruitment hub, says CID report

Srinagar, Feb 20: In a stunning disclosure, the Crime Investigation Department (CID) of Jammu and Kashmir has revealed that the ‘Central Jail’ Srinagar is functioning as militancy recruiting hub and every single militant is recruited only after getting ‘nod’ behind the prison.

Highly placed sources disclosed that the CID has clearly mentioned in its report that jail inmates (militants) have framed a ‘parallel administrative set-up’ inside the jail that takes a decision regarding the recruitment of militants in Kashmir.

However, the CID report is not pinpoint specific as it has not mentioned the name of the final decision taker for the recruitment but it added that it is being ascertained who gives the approval.

Though, taking cognizance of the report prepared by IG CID AG Mir, Director General of Police (DGP) Jammu and Kashmir Dr SP Vaid sent the said report to Principal Secretary (Home) Raj Kumar Goyal in 2017 and sought strict vigil and security within the prison.

If sources are to be believed the report mentions that the ‘parallel administrative setup’ is comprised of ‘Ameer-e-Zindaan’ (The prison chief) appointed by a ‘Shura’ (council) for a period of six months.

Reports said that former DG prison SK Mishra in its reply said that he was highlighting the issue from a long time and had even informed state home department and former inspector general of police (Kashmir) Munir Khan and the deputy inspector general for some action over the issue including carrying out of the searches within the jail premises.

Mishra in his reply to the principal home secretary, JK Govt had highlighted that the poor infrastructure of the jail does not allow the proper segregation of the inmates.

He had also pointed out that only 5 to 20 security personals remains in jail to guard about 300 prisoners which is very insufficient as it is not possible to discipline the inmates with this few guards. He had requested that at least 150 police personnel should be deployed in the jail for meeting the security requirement of the jail and unfortunately which was not considered by the government.

Worthy to mention here, that Mishra was shunted from the post following the escape of Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) militant Mohammed Naveed Jhatt on 6 February, this year from SMHS hospital Srinagar.

New Delhi | The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that the functioning of the state government is “completely paralysed” and it can’t order transfer or posting of officers despite the recent Constitution bench verdict on the administration of Delhi.

The bench of Justices AK Sikri and Navin Sinha said it knows everything and the matter will be taken on July 26 since it is not a regular bench.

Senior advocate P Chidambaram who was representing the Delhi government said, “Functioning of the government is completely paralysed. We cannot post officers, we cannot transfer officers despite the recent constitution bench verdict which has explained every aspect. These issues needs to be adjudicated at the earliest.”

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, who also appeared for the Delhi government, said officers are not willing to file an affidavit on this matter and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had therefore filed the affidavit. “I just wanted to clarify the situation.”

Earlier a five-judge Constitution bench including Chief Justice Dipak Misra recently stated broad parameters for the governance of the Delhi which had a constant power tussle between the Centre and Delhi government since the election of Aam Aadmi Party in 2014.
