The Jammu & Kashmir Assembly on Thursday witnessed an uproar over Indian prisoner Chamel Singh’s torture and death in Pakistan, with the Opposition demanding a resolution condemning it.

Raising the issue of Chamel Singh, JKNPP member Balwant Singh Mankotia urged Speaker Mubarak Gul to unanimously adopt a resolution condemning the death and torture of Singh and also asking the Centre to take it up with Pakistan.

He was supported by other JKNPP members, besides Ashwani Kumar of the JSM.

However, turning down the demand for a resolution, the Speaker said that the Centre is already taking action in connection with the issue. Condemning Singh’s death, the Speaker said an adjournment motion in this regard has been brought earlier in the House. – PTI
