Mehbooba Mufti appeals: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday appealed to Union Home Minister Amit Shah to release Altaf Shah, who is suffering from kidney cancer, on humanitarian grounds. Altaf Shah is the son-in-law of late separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani. He was arrested in 2017 along with six others in a terrorism financing case. He is currently admitted in the medical unit (ICU) of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital (RML) in Delhi. Mehbooba tweeted, “It is inhumane to keep Altaf Shah in captivity as he is seriously ill. I request the Union Home Minister to release her on humanitarian grounds so that she can be with her family at this difficult time.

Altaf is seriously ill

The PDP chief made this comment on a tweet by Altaf Shah’s daughter Rua Shah. Rua had tweeted last night, “My father has been diagnosed with kidney cancer and it has spread to other parts of his body including his bones. On behalf of my entire family, we request that we be allowed to meet him and his bail application is being processed on health grounds.

Altaf Shah is lodged in Tihar Jail

Rua has tagged the Union Home Minister and the Prime Minister in his tweet. Rua further added, “He (Altaf Shah) is currently on oxygen in the ICU (intensive care unit) at RML, which does not have a cancer ward. My 66-year-old father is lodged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail as a political prisoner for the last five years .
