Srinagar, November 18 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the High Court Bar Association (HCBA) has strongly condemned the puppet authorities for slapping black law, Public Safety Act, on senior APHC leader, Masarrat Aalam Butt, for 36th time and shifting him to Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu.

The HCBA spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said, invoking of PSA against Masarrat Aalam Butt is ruthless and classic case of misuse of power and authority by the puppet regime and its functionaries. He said that the APHC leader was repeatedly being detained under the PSA and lodged in jails located outside the Kashmir Valley and thereby his right of fair and speedy trial was violated and the cases pending against him in the courts were dragged on, without any substantial progress.

The HCBA also expressed its deep shock on the damage caused to the shrine of Shah-e-Hamdan, Mir Syed Ali Hamdani, in Srinagar and hailed the efforts of those youth, who extinguished the fire and saved the shrine from getting completely burnt.

APHC leader and the Chairperson of Kashmir Tehreek-e-Khawateen, Zamrooda Habib, in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Indian oppression was increasing in occupied Kashmir with every passing day. She has particularly asked the international community to not only take note of Indian state terrorism but also impress upon it to allow an international probe into the human rights violations by its troops in the territory. She termed the illegal detention of Hurriyat leader, Aasiya Andrabi, and slapping of draconian PSA on Masarrat Aalam Butt one more time as the worst examples of political vengeance.
