SRINAGAR: The State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) Thursday issued notice to Commissioner Secretary, Home Department, and Director General of Police ( DGP), with respect to shifting of Moulana Mushtaq Ahmed Veeri from Kathua to Srinagar.
The Commission member Dilshada Shaheen issued notice to the officers to respond to the contentions of a petition which stated that the religious scholar has been detained illegally under Public Safety Act (PSA) and has been shifted to Kathua Jail in Jammu.
The petition moved by activist Ahsan Untoo pleaded that Veeri, a known religious scholar has been detained “without any justification” and by doing so “state authorities have violated basic human values and rights guaranteed under the constitution”.
