Gitmo clone plan in Kashmir

Imran Ahmed Siddiqui

New Delhi, May 26: The Centre has asked the Jammu and Kashmir government to build a separate high-security prison like the one at Guantanamo Bay or Gitmo in Cuba to house convicted terrorists from Pakistan and those facing trial in terror cases, fearing they may indoctrinate and radicalise other prisoners.

Union home ministry sources said the decision to set up a separate prison in Srinagar was taken recently and it was communicated to chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, who heads the PDP-BJP coalition government in the state.

"The J&K government has agreed to the Centre's proposal and asked for Rs 7 crore last month to build a separate jail exclusively for terrorists like the one in Guantanamo," a source in the Union home ministry said today.

The disclosure came a day after a court in Kashmir's Budgam criticised state police for the "extra-judicial detention" of separatist leader Masarat Alam and said a situation like "Abu Ghraib (the Iraqi prison where atrocities were committed by US soldiers) and Guantanamo cannot be tolerated in India".

"So long as this part of the country is part of the Indian Union, to which this court has no doubt, situations like Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay cannot be tolerated, at least in cases which are raised in the courts," chief judicial magistrate Masarat Roohi had said while granting bail to Alam.

Alam was arrested in 2010 for spearheading protests in the Valley and was released in March last year soon after the PDP-BJP coalition formed the government. He was arrested a month later for allegedly unfurling the Pakistani flag in Srinagar.

A senior home ministry official today said the Centre decided to set up a separate jail for terrorists following a report from security agencies that terror convicts and suspects lodged in the jails in Jammu and Kashmir were a "big threat" even inside the jails as they are likely to lure and radicalise petty criminals.

"The security agencies had cited some examples where ordinary criminals joined terror outfits after being radicalised by terrorists inside jails," the official said.

According to data with the Union home ministry, over 28 Pakistanis accused in terror cases are lodged in various jails across Jammu and Kashmir.

An Intelligence Bureau official recalled how the Narendra Modi government in Gujarat had wanted to build a jail exclusively for terrorists when he was chief minister there.

"In 2010, the Gujarat government had mooted a proposal to set up a new jail near Gandhinagar. Then Gujarat home minister Amit Shah had said if terror convicts and ordinary convicts shared the same prison, there was a chance that the ordinary convicts could become potential sleeper cells for terror groups," the IB official said. It is not clear why the proposal was not pursued further but some officials spoke of problems in finding suitable land.

According to home ministry sources, the Centre is considering a proposal to request all state governments to build separate high-security prisons away from cities to house convicted terrorists and terror suspects.

Last year, the home ministry had asked state governments to install adequate CCTV cameras and mobile-phone jammers inside jails and monitor high-risk prisoners, especially those convicted in terrorism cases, round the clock.

Sources said terror convicts in Tihar jail were always kept in solitary confinement in a high-security ward and they were never allowed to mingle with other prisoners.

"Instead of setting up jail exclusively for convicted terrorists, the priority should be to improve the criminal justice system in the country. More than 75 per cent of the inmates in Tihar alone are undertrials and many of them have spent more than five years behind bars."

Many undertrials have been in jail for as many as nine or 10 years, while several, despite being granted bail, have remained behind bars because they are too poor to afford the surety amounts.

According to figures with the home ministry, undertrial prisoners accounted for an estimated 68 per cent of the over 3.8 lakh inmates of all categories in jails across India.

The conviction rate is only 12-13 per cent. "The criminal justice system needs to be overhauled. Why do we need to keep people inside jails for several years when the prosecution cannot convict them in the end?" asked a prison official.

Pirbagh Murder Mystery: ‘Police tortured my son, threatened to strip his mother to earn confession’

SRINAGAR: The youngster accused of murdering his ‘friend’ has told his relatives in central jail that police forced him into confession with third degree torture and a warning that his mother would be stripped if he refused to take blame on himself. The accused has, however, confessed that he had been regularly talking to the murdered youngster. “I went to meet my son at Central Jail Srinagar. He confessed to me that he would call Owais posing as a girl but categorically said that he did not commit the murder,” Abdul Majeed, father of Ishaan Majeed told Kashmir Reader. Ishaan was held by police from his relative’s residence in Bandipora on January 14 during the investigation into the murder of an engineering student Owais Bashir, whose body was found from Humhama railway track. Police later claimed that Ishaan was involved in his murder and he had confessed to his crime. “My son told me that he was forced into confession at Air Cargo camp of police in Srinagar where he was lodged after his arrest from Bandipora,” Majeed said. “He (Ishaan) has been subjected to third degree torture. He told me that the policemen tied his arms, stretched legs and then gave him electric shocks,” Majeed said adding that during the torture when he screamed his mother’s name in acute pain, they abused the mother. “We will bring your mother here and keep strip her naked. Then you will see what happens,” Majeed quoted his son as narrating his ordeal. “My son had been forced to accept all the charges,” he said. Ishaan told his father that police took him to railway station on January 16 where he was threatened to be thrown under the moving train. “This boy is an irritant, throw him on the railway track and let the train crush him. And then we will tell his family that he committed suicide,” Ishaan quoted a senior police officer having told his men at the railway track, according to his father. He said one of the policemen even tried to hit his head with a boulder. “I was video-graphed at the railway track and again taken there on January 18,” Ishaan told his father. Majeed quoted his son as saying that he a senior officer of the cargo camp warned him against retracting his confession. “Otherwise, we will get a knife from somewhere and say that you have murdered Owais with a knife,” he quoted his son as saying. Police claimed that Ishaan was impersonating as a girl (Umaira) and talking to Owais on phone. The relationship continued for a year-and-a half until on Owais’s insistence they decided to meet each other on January 12. Learning that Ishaan was a boy, police said, Owais entered into a scuffle with him that resulted into Owais’s fall on the railway track inflicting a deep wound on the back of his head that eventually caused his death. Two railway constables discovered the body on the track but sensing that they would be held responsible for the act, they dumped the body into a gorge where stray dogs tried to devour it, police claimed. However, the police claims have discrepancies as per the autopsy report. “Owais’s body had no injury on the back of the head, and no dog bite marks were found on the body,” the autopsy report says adding the boy died due to fatal bleeding and there were torture marks on his body. Ishan has told his father that he did not meet Owais on January 12 though on the insistence of his sisters he called his number because the sisters were worried on his disappearance. Ishaan also confessed that posing as Umaira he was also talking to Owais’s sisters and they knew their relationship. Owais’s sister said that she called up Umaira on January 12 when he did not return his home. “Initially Umaira said she was in talking terms with Owais. Then she said that he had asked her to meet him but she did not go because it was late,” she said. Next day, the family filed missing report at police station Humhama. That day, Owais’s sisters again called Umaira and she told them that she too was trying to track down Owais. At 1 pm, the sisters said, Umaira switched off her phone. Ishaan corroborates this. “Ishaan told me that Owais called him and asked to meet on the railway track, but I refused because it was late. But when I got a call from Owais’s sisters I called him to ask where he was and his sisters were worried about him,” he said. On January 13, when Ishaan was in Bandipora to attend a function and Owais’s family was frantically calling to know the whereabouts, he (Ishaan) panicked and broke his SIM card, Majeed said. “I admit that my son was calling Owais and would play prank with him, but how does it justify that he had murdered Owais. My son is a lean boy and Owais was healthy. How can my son’s one push kill Owais?” he asked. Owais’s father Bashir Ahmad Malik said that the murderer must be brought to book. “For argument sake, I accept that Ishaan cannot do it. But then who is the culprit. Someone is involved. If the killer is Ishaan, we need more proof to believe it. I couldn’t save my son, but I want his murderers to be arrested and jailed for life.” Deputy Superintendent of Police, Magam who is part of the investigation team said, “Ishaan voluntarily accepted that he has murdered Owais,” the officer said. He denied that Ishaan was subjected to torture or was threatened in custody. “Who did this? I don’t know. Whatever we had to say, we have written in the challan,” he said.
