Srinagar, September 24 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Indian officials confirmed that as many as 343 politicians, business leaders and young boys, booked under black law Public Safety Act, have been shifted to jails in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana since the removal of the special status of the territory by the Indian government.

The officials said that 239 persons were lodged in four jails of UP and 104 at two jails in Haryana.

In UP, the inmates are lodged in jails at Agra, Varanasi, Bareilly and Ambedkar Nagar, the officials said. Those shifted have been booked under the draconian law, Public Safety Act.
