Aalam booked under PSA 36th time » Kashmir Media Service

Shifted to Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu

Srinagar, November 16 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the puppet authorities have booked the illegally detained senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League (JKML), Masarrat Aalam Butt, under draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), for the 36th time.

The High Court of the occupied territory had on 26th October, 2017 quashed the 35th PSA detention of Masarrat Aalam and ordered his release. However, Indian police had re-arrested him on November 10 from Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu immediately after his release.

The fresh PSA orders against Masarrat Aalam Butt were issued by the Deputy Commissioner of Kupwara. The JKML Chairman has again been lodged at Kot Bhalwal Jail.

A JKML spokesman in a statement in Srinagar while strongly condemning the slapping of yet another PSA on the party Chairman said that the occupation authorities were taking court orders casually as if the said orders had no sanctity.

It is to mention here that Masarrat Aalam Butt was arrested in October 2010 for spearheading mass uprising that year and since then, barring a few weeks, he has been under illegal detention.
