Srinagar: Police on Saturday evening rearrested Hurriyat Conference (G) secretary general (III) Masarat Alam outside the Kotbhalwal jail soon after he was released by the jail authorities, sources said.
“The Kotbalwal jail authorities released Masarat Alam from Kotbalwal jail after PSA quash order was produced before them,” sources in Muslim League told the Kashmir Reader. “However, an unknown police party came and rearrested Alam and whisked him away to an unknown place.”
The J&K High Court last week had quashed 35th PSA detention order.
Alam is chief of Muslim League which is a constituent of Syed Ali Geelani led Hurriyat Conference.
