SRINAGAR: The incarcerated chairman of Muslim League Jammu and Kashmir Masarat Aalam Bhat was on Saturday brought from Kot Bhalwal Jail, Jammu to Srinagar for the hearing of a case lodged against him in Police Station Nowhatta Srinagar.
A League spokesperson said Aalam was produced before the Additional District and Sessions Judge where the arguments were heard.
“After hearing, Maasrat was taken back to Kot Bhalwal Jail Jammu,” the spokesperson said.
He said Aalam is being implicated in “fictitious” cases, adding, “Authorities instead of honouring the court orders is ignoring all norms and rules as Aalam is being subjected to political vendetta.”
“The policy adopted by government through which Masarat sahib is being moved from one police station to another cannot break his will and courage,” he said. “Government is deliberately doing it under a plan so that he is not released by the court.”
The League spokesperson appealed the rights defender bodies including the Red Cross and Human Rights Watch to take note of the “worst political revenge against Masarat Aalam and his illegal detention”.
