Mumbai: Indian government must do everything it can to bring back Hamid Nehal Ansari, lodged in a Pakistani jail since 2012 and was attacked at least thrice by the inmates in recent months, his mother said.
“We have come to know through media and our advocate also informed us that such an incident has happened with Hamid,” said Fauzia Ansari, mother of the 31-year-old engineering and management graduate from Mumbai, who was sentenced to jail for three years by a military court for possessing a fake Pakistani identity card.
According to Ansari’s lawyer, the Indian prisoner was attacked at least thrice by inmates in recent months in a Peshawar jail. “Our request to the Indian government is to help Hamid, who has not committed any heinous crime. His mistake was to go there with fake documents and he has already suffered a lot for this,” she said.-PTI
