Masrat sent to 11 days’ judicial remand

Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) leader and Muslim League chairman Masarat Alam Bhat was sent to 11 days’ judicial remand on Saturday.
The court of second Munsif Srinagar sent Masarat to the remand.
Police had sought three days’ remand of Masarat a few days ago after he was granted bail by a court.
“Masarat saheb’s police remand had to expire today but the court of second Munsif, Srinagar sent him to 11 days of judicial remand,” a Muslim League spokesperson told Kashmir Reader.
Masarat is undergoing continuous incarceration since 2010 when he was the key mobiliser of the mass uprising.
A day after he was granted bail in 2010 case, a court here on Thursday had remanded Masrat to three days’ police remand in another case registered against him nearly seven years ago.
Alam’s counsel Nasir Qadri told Kashmir Reader that 45-year-old leader was produced by police before the court of 2nd Munsiff in connection with FIR (128/2010) registered in police station Sadder in 2010. Alam has been lodged in police station Shaheedgunj, Qadri had said.
On Wednesday, City Munsiff, Judicial Magistrate 1st Class Srinagar, ordered the police to release Alam after granting bail to him in a case registered in police station Harwan in 2010 under section 13 lawful activities act.
On December 28 last year, the J&K high court had ordered Alam’s release “forthwith from preventive detention”.
The court had passed the orders on Alam’s plea challenging the latest of the 34th detention orders under Public Safety Act, described as lawless law by amnesty international.
Alam was released after a 53-month-long captivity on March 7 2015. However he was again re-arrested on 17 April 2015 and was ordered to be detained under the PSA by the ruling PDP-BJP government to calm down “anger” expressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi against his release. His earlier PSA detentions were also quashed by the high court with a direction to authorities to release him. But he continues to be behind bars.
