SRINAGAR: A youth who was martyred during the 2010 anti-India uprising by the government forces figures in the list of the 117 youth whom the police have warned of detention under draconian Public Safety Act.
The police have pasted a poster listing the 117 youth in Narwara, Eidgah locality of old city.
Anees Khursheed Ganai son of Khursheed Ahmad Ganai, who was killed in 2010 by CRPF at Eidgah, figures at serial 56 in the poster that also mentions the parentage.
Local residents said the poster was pasted on an electric pole during curfew period and when the police left they pointed towards it so that it won’t go unnoticed.
They said that most of the listed youth already stand booked under several cases, mostly stone pelting incidents during 2010.
“This is a useless exercise,” said a Narwara local, adding many of “these youth are working outside the state.”
“The list is aimed at only threatening their relatives or even extract money from their families,” he added.
