PESHAWAR: Relatives of Afghan inmate of Guantanamo Bay prison who died at the US detention facility on February 1 claimed Monday that the deceased had suffered injuries on different parts of his body.
“Muallim Awal Gul’s chest had been torn and there was also a major injury to his leg. It appears that he had undergone heart surgery,” said Nazar Gul, brother of the deceased, who washed the corpse as per the Islamic injunctions. He told the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP) in Jalalabad that there was a deep injury on the back of the head of the deceased but it was not clear what had caused it.
Muhammad Tahir, brother-in-law of the late Awal Gul, said they did not know if he died natural death or had been killed. “It is cruelty meted out to Awal Gul and our family. He was living in Jalalabad after the establishment of Hamid Karzai government in 2001 when he was called by a (pro-government) commander who handed him over to US Army. Neither Awal Gul was an offender nor had he gone underground. But despite this he was kept as prisoner for nine years without proof of any crime against him or trial,” he deplored.
