Jammu, November 21

Former minister and chairman of the Peoples’ Conference Sajjad Gani Lone on Thursday strongly denied that he had established contact with anyone in the national political and security establishment.

“I want to make it clear to my people that there is absolutely no question of me having contacted anyone in the national political or security establishment since I was jailed on August 5,” Sajjad Lone stated in a statement issued here today.

Lone’s statement is the first statement issued by any detained political leaders who have been under prison since August 5.

“In fact, for the first 25 days of my incarceration I wasn’t even allowed to meet my own family and it was nearly a month’s period after my arrest that I met them for the first time. Also, when it came to my notice through credible reports in the sub-jail that the police intend to shift us outside the state on the 15th day of my incarceration, I had left clear instructions for my family to neither appeal nor press for my release under any circumstances. I also wrote a note to my family in which I spoke of how some personal matters, like the school fee of my sons, needed to be dealt with in my absence and nobody in my family was supposed to approach anyone apart from the courts under any circumstances,” he said.— TNS
