Srinagar: An independent MLA from Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday held demonstration against alleged human rights violation here and urged the civil society to pressurise the Centre for revoking AFSPA in the state.

"The human rights violation will not be tolerated. The civil society should pressurise the government to revoke AFSPA from the state as this law has badly affected the lives of people," MLA from Langate Shiekh Abdul Rashid told reporters on the World Human Rights Day here.

Rashid also demanded immediate release of youth, who have been arrested for taking part in protests.

The MLA and his supporters staged a brief a sit-in at Regal Chowk here before dispersing peacefully.
