BANDIPORA: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat’s Nasir Ahmed, a resident of Palhalan, Patan, and Muslim League’s Bandipora district president, Mohammad Assudullah Parray, were booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) on Saturday.
Nasir alias Nasir Molvi was booked by police for his alleged involvement in a stone-pelting incident that caused death to police head constable Kawlain Singh.
Singh had died after the vehicle he was driving met an accident during clashes near restive Palhalan after Eid prayers in October, 2013.
A police official said, “He was a known stone-thrower who attacked the bus driven by Singh in 2013. His behavior was not up to mark in the jail.”
Parray was arrested on August 13, two days ahead of India’s Independence Day. After a month-long detention, he was slapped with PSA and shifted to Udhampur jail last year.
However, his detention was quashed by the High Court on January 1.
“But his illegal detention continued and he was kept in Police Station Hajin,” Mariya, daughter of Asudullah Parray told Kashmir Reader.
“Police have registered two new cases in which court granted bail to him, but, despite that, he (Parray) was slapped with yet another PSA,” she said.
Parray is survived by five daughters and a son. Meanwhile Muslim league General secretary Abdul Ahad Parra have strongly condemned the fresh PSA on Its leader and said that such tactics won’t stop us from taking the mission of martyrs to its logical end.
