SRINAGAR (Agencies) - Emotional scenes were witnessed at Lal Bazar in Srinagar, occupied Kashmir, when an innocent Kashmiri youth, Syed Maqbool Shah, who spent 14 years in an Indian jail in a false case, returned home. Maqbool Shah was one of the four Kashmiris acquitted by a court in New Delhi, the other day, in the Lajpat Nagar blast case, KMS reported. A pall of gloom descend on Lal Bazar area and the people could not hold back their tears as Maqbool Shah broke down at the graves of his father and sister, who had died waiting for him. Maqbool Shah told the people who kept flocking to his house to console him that the Delhi police had arrested and implicated him in a false case solely because he was a Kashmiri. Being Kashmiri is the greatest sin in India. Every Kashmiri youth is a suspect there, he said, adding, I was visiting my elder brother during my winter vacations, and was picked up by Indian police as soon as I arrived in Delhi, he said. Maqbool Shah, who spent one-and-a-half months in an interrogation centre before being sent to jail, recalled the long period of his illegal detention in Tihar Jail with pain. He said the Delhi police had shown June 17, 1996 as the date of his arrest, but he had actually been picked up six weeks earlier. Meanwhile, family members of three youth, Bilal Ahmed Wani, Imran Ahmed Wani and M Ashraf Gojri, who were arrested by Indian troops from Batapora Magam a few days ago, have said that they have been implicated in false cases.
