End Inhuman Treatment of Siddique Kappan and Release Him Immediately – SDPI
MK Faizy, National President of Social Democratic Party of India has demanded the UP government to put an end to its inhuman and merciless treatment meted out to Siddique Kappan, a Karalite journalist.Kappan was arrested and detained by the UP government six months ago, while he was on his way to Hathras to visit the family of the lower caste teen who was gang-raped and murdered by upper-caste youths.Siddique who has been in Mathura jail since, was tested Covid positive and was transferred to KM Medical College Hospital in Mathura. He is tied to the cot with chains and is not even allowed to go to toilet, tells his wife. Injuries caused when he fell down at the jail have not been treated, and he finds it difficult to eat and drink. The way Siddique is being treated by the authorities at the hospital is cruel, heinous, inhuman and barbaric, and violates all human rights. His life is in danger at the present hospital.Faizy demanded the authorities to immediately transfer him from the KM Medical College to AIIMS or Safdarjang Hospital in Delhi and to ensure that he gets proper medical treatment, and his life is saved.
