Srinagar: A veteran Jama’at activist from Sopore, 80 years old Sheikh Mohammad Yousuf has been once again detained under the draconian law of Public Safety Act (PSA), Jama’at spokesman said in a statement on Wednesday.
As per the statement fresh PSA has been slapped on Sheikh after keeping him under judicial custody for more than three months in district jail Kupwara wherein he was lodged in a fake case by Sopore police after his first detention under the PSA was quashed by the High Court.
“The Sopore police instead of releasing him as per the court directions, under a false case shifted him to Kupwara from Baramullah jails,” the statement said.
Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir vehemently denounced the “inhuman” attitude of Sopore police and impressed upon the release of Sheikh and other political detenues and prisoners.
