Three prisoners have gone on hunger strike in Landikotal jail.

“We shall continue the hunger strike until justice is done with us”, they were quoted by insiders in jail in Landikotal here on Friday. The two brothers Fida Hussain and Akhter Hussain, who had been reportedly set free some days back under a bond on guarantee, were again sent behind the bars in a murder case. That is why, sources said, they have gone on hunger strike to protest that why they were again put in the lock up in Landikotal again, which they have termed injustice of the local political administration. Similarly another prisoner identified as Qismat Ali, a very youngster, has also joined the hunger strikers in the jail to record his protest against the local political administration for doing him no justice despite the fact that he had been reportedly declared white in the interrogations by the agencies. However, an official of a spy agency said that Qismat Ali had been sent to Peshawar for “JIT” whose report has not come yet to show whether he is black, white or grey . His father has told this scribe that his son was innocent, but don’t know why he has been tortured without telling him his actual crime. The Landikotal based political administration was approached for comments on the alleged injustices being meted out to some of the prisoners which forces them to go on hunger strike, but in vain to get their response.
