Srinagar, March 13, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League has expressed serious concern over the illegal detention and deteriorating health of party Chairman, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, languishing in a police station in Islamabad district.

A JKPL spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar demanded release of Mukhtar Ahmad Waza and all other political detainees.
